Alban Vineyards, Syrah ''Patrina'' (Central Coast), 2014

“The inky colored 2014 Patrina is a sensational wine and readers looking to check out the Alban style need to latch onto bottles. Cassis, blackcurrants, scorched earth, charcoal and dark chocolate all emerge from the glass, and it’s voluptuous, sexy and layered on the palate. It’s as approachable as they come from John, but that still means it will keep for a decade or more.”
– Jeb Dunnuck (94 points)

“Deep purple-black colored, the 2014 Syrah Patrina is a little broody to begin at this youthful stage, opening out with some coaxing to compelling blackberry preserves, black currants, tar and black soil notions with hints of chocolate box, pepper, Indian spices and licorice. Full-bodied and pleasantly savory in the mouth, it gives up loads of earth and exotic spice flavors plus a solid foundation of firm, rounded tannins, finishing with persistent mineral and pepper notions.”
Wine Advocate (93 points)

“Youthful purple. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit and Indian spice aromas show very good clarity and pick up candied licorice and violet flourishes with air. Smooth and sappy in the mouth, offering sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors and a late suggestion of cracked pepper. Supple, slow-building tannins shape a long, energetic finish that lingers with strong, fruit-driven tenacity.”
