Alban Vineyards Reva Alban Estate Vineyard Syrah 2011

$109.98

96 Points Parker                                        Alban's rare Reva Syrah now available. Limited. 96 Points Robert Parker:  "All of the 2011 Syrahs will be in bottle by the time you read this. The 2011 Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard offers a cool-climate, pretty and perfumed style to go with lots of pepper, violets, iodine and dark fruits, with just a hint of vanilla and oak. Full-bodied, fresh and lively, with bright acidity and fine tannin, it's a Northern Rhone look-alike that will have 15-20 years of longevity."

My first Reva and honestly I expected more. I like the “restraint” of the vintage but just left me wondering what all the fuss is about

15.2% alc. Obviously not as big and bold as other vintages but solid winemaking so count me as a fan still. The word "restrained" rarely applies to Alban but this vintage may come close...

A bit hot from sitting in my car and the wine glass did not quite do it justice, but spectacular none the less.
