2013 Alban "Lorraine" Edna Valley Syrah

SKU #1357922 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Almost always my favorite cuvee from this estate, the 2013 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard offers quintessential notes of black raspberries, crushed flowers, spice, smoked meats and chocolate. It's deep, full-bodied and layered, with plenty of chalky minerality on the finish, yet still has the 2013 approachability and sexiness of the 2013 vintage. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very deep purple-black colored, the 2013 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard emerges from the glass with the most beguiling floral and lifted black fruit notes imaginable! Strutting an incredibly sexy fragrance of roses, chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries, sandalwood and eucalyptus with underlying Chinese five spice, hoisin and Sichuan pepper suggestions, it hits the palate with full-bodied, rich, sultry black fruit preserves and menthol laced flavors, supported by very fine, pixelated tannins and finishing with incredible length and depth. (LPB) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark purple. An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry and cherry preserves, complicated by notes of cola, anise, olive paste and vanilla. Broad, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors show impressive depth, and a zesty mineral quality provides spine and back-end cut. Gains weight and richness with air while maintaining vivacity, and finishes very long and smooth, displaying outstanding clarity and lingering dark berry notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)
