Alban Vineyards Patrina Syrah 2015
Patrina 2015 shows the classic elements of cool climate Syrah: dark color, silty tannins, white pepper, leather, smoke, and meat atop blue and black fruits all elevated with floral notes. 600 cases aged 28 months in 50% new French oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered using gravity.

Wine SpectatorDark and potently built, with expressive blackberry, pepper beef and fig aromas that lead to brooding flavors that build toward broad-shouldered tannins. Hands off for now. Best from 2021 through 2026.
