1999 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah

SKU #995260 90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The opaque purple-colored 1999 Syrah Reva reveals notes of bacon fat, cassis, spicy oak, and an Hermitage-like character. It comes from the coolest section of the vineyard, and perhaps that's why it seems the most French-like. There are 700 cases of this cuvée, which should age well for 10-12 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2002)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep, saturated ruby-red. Expressive aromas of mulberry, black raspberry, spiced meat, gunflint, cardamom and smoke. Chewy and concentrated, with a saline impression of extract; hints at exotic spices. Sweeter and more pliant than the estate's '99 grenache, but still a rather reserved style of California syrah despite its density. Finishes with noteworthy power and persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2001)
