Robert Parker 97 RP - 2006 Alban Vineyards Pandora Rhone Blend - 97 pts! A blend of 92% Grenache and 8% Syrah, the 2006 Pandora possesses those sexy, open-knit aromas that smell as if one is walking through an open air Provencal fruit, spice, and vegetable market. Deep ruby/purple-hued and medium to full-bodied, it offers hints of lavender, pepper, kirsch, raspberries, and darker fruit. This is an individualistic wine that should mature quickly, and provide the most luscious early drinking. 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.
