100% Tempranillo, about 14 mos in new French oak. Deep Ruby, aromas of dark fruits, spice, floral and earthy oak. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry & plum with tobacco, licorice and sweet cedar. Tannins, still tight, support the backbone of the wine, needs more bottle age. Well balance with acidity, full body, lingering finish ends with some fruit, oak, spice, and earthy character. Nice!

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, spice, floral and oak for this 100% Tempranillo. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry & plum with hints of espresso, cacao and licorice wrapped in earthy oak. Firm tannins, still grippy, great balance with acidity, full body, long finish ends with fruit, oak, spice, and earthy mineral character. Just outstanding, needs more time!

A really nice wine, the Alion 2015 is one of the best Alion’s I drunk in recent years and it surprisingly ready to enjoy at this young age. Complex, rich, elegant , balanced all in one, notes of dark chocolate 🍫, plum, cherries, black current, earth and espresso all come together nicely in a full bodied wine that is rich smooth and have lovely well integrated tannins and a long delicious finish. My score 92, drink to 2026

Dark, dense ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, currants, vanilla and strong cocoa powder. On the palate, vanilla dominates with cherry and cocoa powder mirroring the nose along with hints of tobacco. A long cherry and vanilla finish with hints of toasted oak. Full bodied with strong tannins. Upon revisiting the wine after around 30 minutes there was an additional richness and strong notes of chocolate.
