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. 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.
