“Super nose – full of flex and poise; a contortion of fruit, power and secondary aromas – there are strawberry flavours, earth, and truffles like Pinot Noir; and then black fruit concentration, and exotic, extravagant spiciness. The palate seems much less mature than the nose – the fruit is still bound up and tense. Outstanding. – 18+/20, Jancis Robinson (9/2009)

Bodegas Alión was started by the renowned estate of Vega Sicilia in 1991. Grapes are sourced from vineyards next to the winery and from Vega Sicilia’s own vineyards at Valbuena. Eighteen hectares of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) form the actual Alion estate. The 2004 Alión is inky purple-colored with an alluring perfume of toasty oak, lavender, violets, mineral, blackberry, and blueberry compote. This is followed by a full-bodied, rich, opulent, wine with incipient complexity, and notes of licorice, mocha, and espresso emerging on the palate. The lengthy finish is pure and persistent. Give it 3-5 years in the cellar and drink it through 2025.” – 96 points, Jay Miller, RobertParker.com
