Alban has received TEN “99- 100” point ratings from Robert Parker and this is their #1 bargain under $60!

John Alban is perhaps the most celebrated winemaker in California, though most collectors never get to taste his legendary red wines. Alban has received ten 99- to 100-point ratings from Robert Parker and more effusive praise than we could ever recap in this small space. The new Alban Syrah Patrina 2013 is a majestic bargain from this legendary producer that offers “a velvety rich texture with marvelous depth and complexity of luxurious dark fruit.” This wine has a richness and depth that will pair perfectly with upcoming summer bbq dinners for years to come, so stock up now before the micro production disappears!

“Classic” 95 Points
“This opulent red thriller offers a velvety rich texture with marvelous depth and complexity with layers of black cherry, currant, plum, Indian spices and hints of dark chocolate on the finish. Thanks to deftly balanced structure from this master craftsman, this beauty will deliver pleasure with a wide variety of menus now through 2023.” (March, 2016) – California Wine Advisors
