Tasting Notes:
rated: August 25, 2012 , Antonio Galloni (WS)
94 points "The 2009 Reva (Syrah) caresses the palate with layers of striking, pure fruit. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout, adding considerable freshness. The 2009 has some of the opulence found in vintages such as 2007, coupled with the energy of years like 2008. Polish and pure sensuality abound in this utterly impeccable Syrah. Sweet floral notes and a blast of dark red fruit frame the long finish. This is yet another head-spinning wine from Alban. (94-96)." Best 2014-2024

93 points "Inky purple. Deeply scented, spicy and smoky aromas of ripe cherries and cassis are lifted by notes of black pepper, Indian spices and a dusty herbal quality. Shows impressive depth and vivacity to its blueberry and blackcurrant flavors, which are sharpened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins come on late, adding focus to a sweet, impressively long finish. This sexy syrah is surprisingly approachable but clearly has the material for a positive evolution in the cellar."

92 points "Ripe and fleshy, with generous blackberry, plum, raspberry and licorice notes, revealing an edge of fresh-turned earth and cedar." Best -2022
