Palate Profile

Alión comes from carefully selected terroirs located in the very best areas of the Ribera del Duero DO region. The soils complement each other, and allied with the same winemaking process used in Vega Sicilia, they have produced wines with a firm structure.

2019 was a drier vintage than normal, which was also noted during the grape tasting. Potent, concentrated skins, yet with a very firm structure.

Critic Awards

Ripe, tarry plums and black cherries with violets, rocks, coffee and graphite. Refined notes of balsamic fruit and cocoa powder, too. Full-bodied and juicy with an iron fist of tannins, yet at the same time so velvety and polished. Very long, focused finish, showing lots of finesse and layers. Drinkable now, but better after 2025.

They define 2019 as a powerful, concentrated and juicy vintage, sensual and unctuous. It's quite fruit-driven, ripe and juicy, with abundant, slightly dusty tannins despite the limited pumping over they did to avoid extracting too much, and the maceration was also shortened."

A tightly-meshed red structured by firm, chalky tannins, but there's a plush, polished edge to that frame, and it's well meshed with a pretty range of boysenberry coulis, violet, mocha and Earl Grey tea leaf flavor. Hints of tar and black licorice linger on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2029.
