If I was asked to hold up a bottle of what modern Ribera del Duero should taste like and what is should aspire to, the 2008 Alion would be the one in my hand. It has more intensity and volume on the nose when compared directly with the 2007...it remains a fabulous expression of Ribera del Duero. It boasts of heavenly bouquet of black plum, crushed violets and tobacco that soar from the glass, while displaying a level of delineation that would serve a lesson to many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, silky-smooth tannins that belie the structure underneath. The acidity lends the 2008 a little more edginess than the 2007, while the finish has a wonderful sense of symmetry and focus. World class. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Unlike many, many other RdD the precision and elegance, with power and structure on display here is impeccable. The house style from the grand daddy Unico is apparent. This is a wine to savor, linger on and appreciate over hours. The complexity complicates a bouquet and palate that are fresh and soulful. #spain #ribera #alion #vegasicilia

16.5/20 (91/100) Сочное вино с большим количеством чёрных ягод, черники, пряностей. Хвоя, манго. Танины чуть суховаты, много дуба.

More restrained due to cooler vintage. Precise & just ripe red fruit. Some subtle herb-y character. Pleasant.
