2001 Alban "Pandora" Edna Valley Rhône Blend

SKU #1007482 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2001 Pandora (60% Grenache and 40% Syrah) reveals minerality, kirsch liqueur, and the red as well as black fruit spectrum in a beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, open-knit style. Already revealing evolved notes of balsam wood, spice box, licorice, and garrigue, this beautiful 2001 can be enjoyed over the next decade. (RP)  (8/2004)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A dark, rich, potent young wine, with packed exotic wild berry, blackberry, leather, beef and white pepper, with a touch of tar and spice, finishing with a wave of flavor accented by a melted chocolate aftertaste. Grenache and Syrah.  (2/2004)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
