2005 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah

SKU #1034312 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The intense, inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Syrah Reva Vineyard boasts gorgeous notes of graphite, smoke, roasted meat, herbs, and oodles of blackberries and creme de cassis. This full-bodied, fabulously rich Syrah is a superb success for the vintage. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Explosively perfumed bouquet of spicy red and dark berries, olive, tobacco, iodine and charred meat; I could smell this for hours. Spicy blackberry, cassis and bitter cherries are complicated by violet pastille and suave vanilla and cinnamon. Gains weight but retains clarity on the long, juicy finish. The tannins make a late appearance but are quickly buried under the sheer volume of fruit. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2007)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and beefy, with plush smoke, blueberry, blackberry and spicy, leathery scents. Fans out and gains depth and complexity, picking up exotic spice notes. *Top 100 Wines of 2007* (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2007)
