Bodegas Alion Alion Ribera del Duero 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smell expensive, expensive oak, cigar wrapper, vanilla, coffee bean and cherry fruit all make an appearance on the nose. Lush and polished with good acidity and showing some finesse acroos the palate though with some drying tannin on the finish which offers some nuanced bitterenss with notes of cherry pits and coffee bean. Really drinking well but may benefit from an additional year or two to polish the tannin on the finish.

Starting to taste a bit old. Likely past its peak
