"The 2002 Pandora (a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) boasts explosive notes of kirsch liqueur, a dense ruby/purple color, considerable elegance, wonderful sweetness as well as ripeness, and a superb 55-second finish. Arguably the finest Pandora produced by John Alban to date..."
The Wine Advocate
"Medium ruby. High-toned, slightly porty aromas of black raspberry and dark chocolate. Extremely dense and concentrated, with high-toned flavors of raspberry, violet and spices, plus a whiff of meat.
