    The 2013 Viognier Estate is about as hedonistic as this variety gets, yet always stays in check and is a joy to drink. Unfortunately, there are only 250 cases to go around. Ripe, full-bodied, voluptuous and decadent, with textbook apricot, flowers, brioche and orange blossom aromas and flavors, it will easily stand beside a great Condrieu. Like with the Central Coast release, it will drink nicely for several years.

  • 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.
