    The 2011 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard is the clear standout in 2011. Full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully textured and with superb ripeness, it offers lots of currants, tapenade, spice-box and smoked meats to go with a full-bodied, concentrated and even voluptuous feel on the palate. While this was backward and reserved during my tasting last year, it's come on like gangbusters since then and is one of the more approachable and forward Seymour's I've tasted.

  • Alban Vineyards is a California wine estate producing various Rhone style blends and varietal wine. The winery is located in Edna Valley, near Arroyo Grande in the southern corner of San Luis Obispo County.

    Starting in 1985, John Alban planted grapes for other people until he bought an estate in 1989. With a focus on creating wines made from Rhone Valley varieties, Alban became one of the pioneers in the Rhone Rangers movement, and is considered one of the most influential American Rhone producers.

    Within a 250-acre (100 ha) area, the vineyard area extends 60 acres (24 ha), and is planted with varieties Syrah, Viognier and Roussanne. Grenache and Roussanne are also sourced from vineyards located in the warmer Paso Robles AVA.

    Among the vineyard designate wines produced are the Lorraine Vineyard, Reva Vineyard Syrah and Seymour's Vineyard Syrah. Alban also produces Pandora, a blend of Grenache and Syrah, and a botrytized dessert wine.
