Very different from the Lorraine, the 2007 Alban Vineyards Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard shows a more black fruit, structured character with awesome blackberry and crème de cassis, pepper, licorice and mineral aromas on the nose. These carry over to the palate where the wine is medium to full bodied and beautifully put together, possessing solid structure, fantastic texture, good acidity and a very long, classy finish. This does not show quite the depth of the ’06 at the moment, but it will be interesting to see how this evolves in barrel and then bottle. Either way, stunning stuff.
Opulent yet reserved with wonderful pepper, black fruits, meats, game, and truffles on the nose and palate. Decadent. Long and wonderful. Wild wine.
The 2007 Syrah Reva is dazzling. It possesses striking inner perfume and beautifully delineated fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, freshly cut white flowers, licorice, tar and asphalt are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. Alban gave the 2007 Reva 44 months in untoasted French oak barrels.

Inky purple. Black and blue fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with smoke and Indian spice nuances adding complexity. Densely packed and forceful, with building notes of candied licorice and mocha. This very rich, seamless wine shows very good energy in the mid-palate. A candied violet quality comes up on the finish, which clings with impressive tenacity. (JR)
Fresh, intense and vivid, with zesty wild berry, blackberry, cherry and kirsch flavors. Full-bodied and firming nicely, with tannins that provide traction and dimension. *Highly Recommended* (JL)
