The 2004 Alion 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.
"Bodegas Alion 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.

"Saturated red. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are complemented by subtle Indian spice and mineral
qualities. Really shows its fruit on the palate today, offering vivid red berries, blackberry and candied. Tannins

"Cherry, raisin, tobacco and cola flavors are supported by firm tannins and lively acidity in this maturing but still fresh red. Nicely focused. Drink now through 2014." 89 PointsWine Spectator
