    January 17, 2020 - Balanced and elegant while intense. Red berry, subtle spice, medium to full body, delicious now but has improved on day two.

    October 1, 2019 - Big raspberry, cocoa, pencil lead, and orange peel, with vanillin oak on the youthful boisterous nose. It really hits its stride in the mouth: super delicious and sublime black raspberry with bright and freshening acidity. Stays pretty through the persistent finish.
    It ought to settle a bit and maybe add some weight, but it’s definitely drinking great already. Could get better, and should last to 2030 easily.

    April 2, 2019 - Pnp'd from the cellar. I consider this the "entry level" of the Alban Syrah wines. I decided to purchase a bottle with my allocation to fill the rest of my order of blockbuster wines. I should have purchased a few more! Huge aromatics of menthol, hints of smoke and crushed blueberries. Gigantic mouth filling flavors of bright red Syrah fruit that puts an instant smile on anyone's face that tastes this baby. Buy these if you see them! EG #WineArchitect #ArchitecturalArtistry
