After 10 years this is coming together. Good bright fruit.

So, the baseline for Alban Reva is WAY up there, so my comments have to be viewed through that lens. Even after decanting (admittedly for on 30 min), this wine is really closed. It's got great potential, but unless you have time to give it a few hours, it's not going to be anywhere near where it could be (so, great instead of ethereal!).

Had to pull this after 08 Terry Hoage Hedge. This is dense and dark, black cherries and lots of cocoa, with smoke, tobacco. Something a little odd on the nose-mediciney-kept changing. Big fine tannins, ends with tar.

Loved it - gave it an hour+ of air. A powerhouse of a syrah.

Infanticide for sure. But it was worth a peek at ahem like this. Tannin for days that feels integrated and tight. Wow I want to revisit This in 10 years

One of the more elegant Revas I’ve had, this wine is drinking perfectly right now. Gone are some of the (occasionally) overpowering roasted meat notes, the nose is rich with candied blackberries, hints of iodine, violet, and molasses - beautifully integrated. The palate is rich and full bodied, but with a gracefulness that I’m sure is due to its age, sitting for the past decade in our cellar. Great, lingering finish. Easily one of the best versions of this wine I’ve had in a long time.
