Bodegas Y Viñedos Alión Ribera del Duero Reserva 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby-red. Currant,roasted herbs,cuban tobacco,black olive,black pepper. Lush, supple, firmly built, velvety, multilayered flavors. Rich; no impression of excess weight. Fine-grained tannins; outstanding palate-saturating persistence. Tasting notes The finest Alion i have tasted from this project owned by the proprietors of Vega Sicilia, the 2001 is a sensational effort... Deep ruby, purple color is followed by a glorious, smoky nose of espresso, dried herbs, roasted meats, sweet black currants, new saddle leather, plums, and cherries. This provocative, rich, complex, full-bodied Ribera del Duero possesses wonderful glycerin, fabulous purity, and a long finish that lasts for 40 seconds. It is an opulent, voluptuously-styled wine with great stature. Drink it over the next decade.
