2004 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah

SKU #1025331 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2004 Syrah Reva is classic in style, with its iodine, olive and salty, marine-like character front and center. Coming from the gravelly, sandy clay loam soils on the estate, it shows more textbook Syrah character with air (very northern Rhone-like) and has first rate complexity, gorgeous dark fruit and brilliant overall purity. Showing almost no evolution, with full-bodied richness, fine tannin and a balanced, fresh and lengthy profile, it will continue to drink beautifully for another decade or more. (JD)  (4/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Dark, intense and concentrated, with beefy, peppery wild berry and herbal scents joined by hints of tar and tobacco. Focused and deftly balanced. Tannic yet smooth-textured, ending with dashes of espresso and cedar. *Highly Recommended, Top 100 Wines of 2006* (JL)  (12/2006)

92 points Vinous

 Saturated ruby. Deep aromas of blackberry, violet, bacon fat, smoked meat and mocha. Then super sweet, chewy and lush, with explosive dark berry flavors complicated by game, charred oak, mocha and a saline nuance. Finishes with big, broad, dusty tannins and superb length. I actually thought this lacked a bit of verve on the nose, but there's plenty of acidity and grip on the back. (ST)  (9/2006)
