2000 Alban Vineyards Seymour's Vineyard Syrah - 96 pts
The luxury cuvee of 2000 Syrah Seymour’s Vineyard (named after John Alban’s father) is a Syrah on steroids. A bottle left open for two weeks revealed no signs of oxidation. Amazing! The inky/blue/purple color is followed by a wine reminiscent of dry vintage port. Notes of scorched earth, blackberry liqueur, and asphalt are presented in an unctuous, thick, chewy style with marvelous extract and multiple dimensions. This is a tour de force in winemaking, and certainly any Rhone Ranger aficionado should be beating a path to Alban Vineyards to get a bottle or two of this elixir. The wines of John and Lorraine Alban are about as spectacular as one can find anywhere in the world. Alban is committed to aging his big Syrahs longer in barrel, believing it will concentrate the wines and add additional complexity. RP
