Bodegas Alion představuje skvělé vyjádření zralých hroznů Tinto fino. Víno má koncentrovanou tmavou barvu se zářivým a svůdným okrajem, typickým pro své mládí a vyzrálost díku dřevu. Víno má příjemné aroma pražené kávy, sušených bylin, černého rybízu, švestek a třešní, doplněné stopou kouřovosti. V ústech se smísí sladší ovocné třísloviny získané z hroznů společně se suchými a uhlazenými tříslovinami z francouzského dubu. Velmi silné a ...

A Proprietary Blend wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2008 Alion 750ml
Dark purple, almost black at the core with a ruby rim. This shows an expressive bouquet of blackberry and lavender mixed with more subtle notes of graphite, toasty brioche, coriander and just a hint of eucalyptus. Broad and expansive on the palate, t... Alex Shaw. A Proprietary Blend wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2008 Alion 750ml
If I was asked to hold up a bottle of what modern Ribera del Duero should taste like and what is should aspire to, the 2008 Alion would be the one in my hand. It has more intensity and volume on the nose when compared directly with the 2007. Tasted in February 2012, and then in January 2013, it remains a fabulous expression of Ribera del Duero. It boasts of heavenly bouquet of black plum, crushed violets and tobacco that soar from the glass, while displaying a level of delineation that would serve a lesson to many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, silky-smooth tannins that belie the structure underneath. The acidity lends the 2008 a little more edginess than the 2007, while the finish has a wonderful sense of symmetry and focus. World class. Drink 2016–2025+.
Espresso and pomegranate flavors mingle in this polished red. Vibrant acidity keeps this lively, while mineral and herbal notes add interest to the finish. Balanced, firm and graceful. Drink now through 2016.
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.
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.
