    February 20, 2021 - Alban does it again. A wonderfully delicious wine that had a creamy feeling that reminded me of a Quilceda Cabernet. Paired with filets done on a Ninja Grill, first time trying this new appliance. Great raspberry nose and long satisfying finish done in the true Alban style.

    February 1, 2021 - Even more disappointing than our previous bottle... tight and a bit tart, even after an hour in decanter. This is not the soft, lush fruit bomb we think of with Alban Grenache.

    January 15, 2021 - Had this next to the Pandora. Both great but this is slightly less in your face. Still a big black fruited wine with long finish that I would be happy to drink any day.

    September 18, 2020 - This is a very big wine, offering more black & blue than typical red grenache fruits, and it comes close to being somewhat unbalanced. Still, if you appreciate bigger wines, this is an excellent wine in its class - - lovely aromatics and a very long finish. Drinking well now, but still many years to go - - no need to rush.

    July 10, 2020 - Really nice with big and juicy mouthfeel and long finish that's too easy to drink.
