Alban Vineyards Reva Syrah 2013

100% Syrah aged 42-months in French oak offers up more fruit and purity than normal, with only hints of its normal iodine/seaweed tinged profile. Loaded with sweet black raspberry, cassis, wild herbs, flowers and subtle blood and iodine qualities, it is a full-bodied, decadent Syrah that has incredible mid-palate depth, beautiful freshness and a blockbuster finish. This is one of the most extraordinary Syrahs you will ever try made by one of California's pioneers of the variety.

"Very deep purple-black colored, the 2013 Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard reveals a drop-dead beautiful nose of violets, potpourri and black forest cake over a core of preserved plums, mulberries and creme de cassis plus a waft of star anise. Full-bodied, rich and flamboyant in the mouth, the seductively ripe, generous fruit is well-framed by satin-textured tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and perfumed."
