2016 Alban Vineyards Syrah Lorraine, USA, California, Edna Valley, Wine Review
Alban wines typically take some time to come around, but at age 7, this was drinking quite well. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, slight dark chocolate and black pepper. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is delicious. It is on the bigger side but not a monster. Black raspberry fruit with some black pepper and a bit of roasted herbs. Long finish.
