There's not much of the 2013 Syrah Seymour’s Vineyard to go around (100 cases), but it's another sensational wine. Black raspberries, cassis, licorice, chalky minerality and smoke all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with a wealth of fruit and texture. Showing awesome violet aromas and flavors, it's unquestionably the most approachable vintage of this cuvee I've tasted. It's already a joy to drink, in a primarily sort of way, but will be at its best from 2020 to 2040. If I had to come up with a list of the greatest wine estate in the world, Alban Vineyards would certainly be in there. Readers need to understand that this estate is an anomaly, lying at the very end of the Edna Valley, and the only estate in 50+ miles making wines of this quality.
Very deep purple-black in color, the 2013 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard slowly unfurls with coaxing to reveal wonderfully pure, freshly crushed black cherries, black berries and black currants notes with underlying suggestions of cloves, espresso, chargrill and violets plus wafts of incense, sauteed herbs and chocolate box. The powerful, muscular, full-bodied palate continues on the theme of purity with incredible delineation, offering layers of black fruits and savory notions and a ripe, rounded tannins texture, finishing with epic length.

Vivid purple. Smoke- and spice-accented black and blue fruit, floral pastille, incense and cola aromas are complicated by an exotic Indian spice overtone. Palate-staining cherry, black currant, violet and spicecake flavors are lifted and sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. Gains flesh and weight with air while maintaining vivacity, and finishes alluringly sweet and extremely long, displaying persistent floral and spice notes and harmonious, slow-mounting tannins. (JR)
