Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2013 Syrah Reva sports an inky color as well as notes of crème de cassis, charred earth, licorice, wood smoke and just hints of the classic iodine and seaweed character that really defines this cuvee. Supple, seamless, silky and opulent, with sweet, sweet tannin and a silky finish. It shows more and more spice with time in the glass, is incredibly polished, layered and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming 15-20 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Very deep purple-black colored, the 2013 Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard reveals a drop-dead beautiful nose of violets, potpourri and black forest cake over a core of preserved plums, mulberries and creme de cassis plus a waft of star anise. Full-bodied, rich and flamboyant in the mouth, the seductively ripe, generous fruit is well-framed by satin-textured tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and perfumed.

Vinous

Youthful purple. Expressive, mineral-accented aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice and incense, given spicy lift by a peppery quality. Plush and expansive on the palate, offering sweet cassis, blueberry and fruitcake flavors that show excellent depth and a suave floral pastille flourish. Delivers an impressive blend of richness and vivacity and closes sappy, smooth and very long, featuring slow-building tannins and a lingering mineral note.

Wine Spectator

Refined yet dynamic, with a structured and balanced core of acidity and tannins framed by formidable black raspberry, smoky meat, licorice and orange zest flavors that build momentum toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026.
