2008: 92 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Deep ruby. Expressive aromas of candied cherry and cassis, with complicating notes of cola, anise and violet. Plush and seamless on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and slow-building oak spice and licorice nuances. Closes on a smoky note, with spiciness and very good persistence. Pretty impressive for the year."


Technical notes
Wine Information: Vega Sicilia's managing director, Pablo Alvarez, calls Alion "a wine somewhere between a Ribera del Duero and a Medoc in style." It is made from 100% Tempranillo from 15- to 20-year-old vines. After alcoholic and malolacitc fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is transferred to 100% new French oak from the Nevers forest. After 12-14 months in oak, the wine undergoes further aging in bottle before release.
