Alban Vineyards is a wine estate in Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County, California. Winemaker John Alban is credited with being one of the first Californians to plant the Rhone varietals Viognier, Rousanne, and Syrah in 1989. His successful pioneering efforts led the way for the California Rhone Ranger movement and have since been a significant source for these varietals for other winemakers and his own Alban Vineyards label. He sources Mourvedre and Grenache from Paso Robles where hotter conditions are more conducive to growing those grapes. Apart from white and red single varietal releases and blends, Alban also produces a dessert wine with botrytis grapes called Rotten Luck. Read less

I have had past vintages of their basic viognier often - and this was the worse vintage. Although it had the abundant bouquet of flowers and grapefruits and spice, in the mouth it was less dimensional and flabby and slightly bitter

Full aromas of perfumed honeysuckle and lemon rind burst from the glass. The intense, fresh flavors center around various tropical fruits and lemon oil with a silky mouthfeel and a long, flavor filled finish.
