Bodegas Y Viñedos Alión Ribera del Duero Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Alion, *owned by the legendary Vega Sicilia estate*, was founded in 1986. The first vintage to be sold was 1991. The wine made here is a Bordeaux-styled, "modern" wine. The winery is located just down the road from Vega Sicilia and the wine is made from 100% tempranillo from 37 hectares planted in 1986 as well as some younger vines planted at Vega Sicilia. Following fermentation, the wine remains in tank for two or three months on its fine lees before being moved into all new French oak barrels. Edited from www.bodegasalion.com

Cherry, mild leather and tobacco on the nose. The more one turns the wine, the more fruits: blackcurrant, sandalwood/ oak/ petrol. A very good wine, which drinks well by itself.

This wine is has evolved nicely so far. It still has some pretty serious acid which almost seems to be a bit much. If you are having it with food make sure its rich of fatty. I think it will benefit from some more cellar time. Its got nice spiciness, earthiness and a fair amount of fruit. Not My favorite vintage of Alion, but still a very solid wine.

PI. Rubi escuro, com bastante sedimentos mas brilhante. Nariz fresco, lembrando esmalte, aceto balsâmico, cereja, morangos, com um floral sutil. Ao contrário da Jancis, não notei nada que remetesse a aromas animais. Fruta limpa e fresca, alta acidez, pimenta branca, taninos numerosos e finos. Apesar de não ser dos mais elegantes, tem a personalidade dos Vega Sicilia. Estilo bastante diferente do 2003, tomado no dia anterior. Este aqui tem menos opulência e muito mais tipicidade. Um Alión em grande estilo, que não fez feio mesmo tendo sido servido após um Valbuena 96. [i]Excepcional[/i]. (92 pts.)

The 2006 Alion, aged in 100% new French oak, is a saturated purple color with a fetching bouquet of sandalwood, smoke, Asian spices, incense, and black cherry confiture. In the mouth it has outstanding volume, kinky spice notes, savory black fruits, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2006 Alion 750ml
