2007 Alban "Lorraine" Edna Valley Syrah

SKU #1133451 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another candidate for perfection will be the 2007 Syrah Lorraine. Extraordinary aromatics of acacia flowers intermixed with asphalt, camphor, blackberry, and cassis are followed by a wine with enormous concentration yet brilliant delineation and nuance. The super, deep, mind-blowing richness and complexity of this wine are awesome and something to behold. This is another Rhone Ranger that needs to be tasted to be believed. Of course, it won’t be released for at least another year, and should evolve for 15-20. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Straight up silky, perfumed, and elegant, the 2007 Alban Vineyards Syrah Lorraine is a gorgeous wine! Displaying sweet raspberry ganache, crème de cassis, spiced meats and toasted bread like aromas on the nose, it continue to wow on the palate, with full bodied power, perfect balance and a seamless, harmonious texture. Where the Reva wows with black fruits and burly structure and impact, this finesses and seduces with red fruits and a seamless, flawless demeanor. A joy to taste and the finish shows fantastic length and superb focus. Inner quote mark (11/2010)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2007 Syrah Lorraine is a large-scaled, dramatic wine bursting with super-intense blue and black fruit, cassis, leather, spices and licorice. The Lorraine shows fabulous balance of aromatics, fruit and structure. Today the Lorraine offers the best potential for longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sturdy, dark and rich, offering an intense medley of dark berry, black licorice and wild berry flavors, with a touch of leather. Ends with traction, holding the flavors on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2025. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
