Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia Alion Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2013

$74

Bodegas Alion, owned by the legendary Vega Sicilia estate, was founded in 1986. The first vintage to be commercialized was 1991. The winery is located just down the road from Vega Sicilia and the wine is made from 100% tempranillo from 37 hectares that were planted in 1986 as well as some younger vines planted at Vega Sicilia. With an extremely smooth, polished palate feel and oodles of deep, classy currant and plum fruit, and remarkable harmony and presence. Even in its tender youth this modern-feeling effort combines both hedonism and elegance. Gorgeous.

1991 inaugural vintage by famous Vega Sicilia estate. Tried the ‘13 a few times and it doesn’t disappoint. Ruby with an array of aromas, dark fruits, spice, floral and some oak. The palate shows strawberry, blackberry & plum flavors with hints of espresso and licorice surrounded with gentle oak. Tannins are firm and support the backbone of this tremendous wine. Well balance with acidity, full body, lingering finish ends with some fruit, oak, spice, and mineral character. Will benefit from more time!

Alion was launched with the 1991 vintage by the famous Vega Sicilia estate. The last vintage I tried was the ‘08. Beautiful Ruby with an array aromas of dark fruits, spice, floral and some oak. The palate shows strawberry, blackberry & plum flavors with hints of espresso and licorice surrounded with gentle oak. Tannins are a bit strong but needed to support the backbone of this tremendous wine. Well balance with acidity, full body, lingering finish ends with some fruit, oak, spice, and mineral character. Needs 10 years!
