96 points "Opaque purple-colored, with an incredible nose of creosote, scorched earth, hot rocks, coffee, barbecue smoke, blackberries and cassis is the 2007 Syrah Reva. The wonderful, broad, expansive mid-palate is stacked and packed in this multi-dimensional wine. It shows virtually no evidence of new oak thanks to its sheer concentration and power. (96-100)."

96 points "The 2007 Syrah Reva is dazzling. It possesses striking inner perfume and beautifully delineated fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, freshly cut white flowers, licorice, tar and asphalt are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. Alban gave the 2007 Reva 44 months in untoasted French oak barrels." Best 2017-2027
