TASTING NOTES

"The 2010 Syrah Reva is magnificent. Blue and blackish tone fruits, smoke, tar, licorice, cloves and menthol all flesh out in a supple, exotic wine endowed with superb depth and polish. An explosive finish rounds things out beautifully in this impeccable, opulent Syrah. The 2010 spent 44 months in oak, 70% new, all of which it has handled with grace. Of the three 2010 Syrahs, this is the wine I would personally reach for more often, as it is truly stellar." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"One of three single vineyard Syrahs from the cooler 2010 vintage, the 2010 Syrah Reva is the largest production cuvée of the three and comes from a number of estate plots, most containing volcanic soils. Smoke, graphite, iodine and chocolate all show in this full-bodied, concentrated, yet fresh and lively Syrah. It will benefit from short-term cellaring and 15 years of longevity. This is another incredible lineup by Rhône superstar John Alban. For the life of me, I can't understand why no one else in the Edna Valley tries to make wine anywhere close to this level of quality."

"An intriguing mix of complex flavors that weaves together, creating a mosaic of dark berry, fresh earth, black licorice, light mocha and savory notes, firming midpalate and sailing along on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,200 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Inky purple. Deeply pitched aromas of dark berries, cherry compote, smoky herbs, dried flowers and Indian spices. Dense and velvety on the palate, with chewy red and dark berry flavors, smoky minerality and youthfully firm tannins. Gains sweetness on a long, sappy finish that strongly repeats the dark berry note." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com
