Winemaker Notes

Lorraine is 100% Syrah from a combination of marine soils with cobbles and sandstone vineyards laced with chalk. This wine always has the reddest fruits of Alban's Syrahs, and the sweetest roundest tannins. Aged 3.5 years in barrel and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sweet, fleshy, and flamboyant is the 2000 Syrah Lorraine. It reveals glycerin, terrific concentration, and an underlying mineral component no doubt attributable to the stony subsoils. This may be the finest Lorraine yet produced.
Range: 92-95
WS 94
Wine Spectator
An enormous, espresso-style wine in every respect. Inky black in color, with dense and lovely boysenberry, pomegranate, tobacco and anise. Fairly coats the palate with plush tannins, yet for all its intensity and extracted fruit flavors there's a sense of grace and deft balance.

Alban, California
Alban Winery Image

Alban Vineyards is the first America winery and vineyard established exclusively for Rhone varieties. Conceived at a time when there were virtually only two "flavors" of wine produced in the U.S., they set out to introduce wine grapes that would offer oenephiles a new world of possibilities. Pioneering Roussanne, Grenache Noir and Viognier to go along with meticulously selected clones of Syrah, Alban Vineyards has guided consumers and producers to the enormous potential of Rhone varietals in California.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
