Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 94

While 2002 was a lesser vintage, you would never know it from tasting the 2002 Alion. Saturated purple in color, it offers up an exotic nose of coconut, espresso, herbs, black currants and cherries. Rich and complex on the palate with lots of glycerin and layers of black fruit flavors, it has a pure, long finish that goes on and on. Importer: Christopher Cannan, Europvin; www.europvin.com [Jay S Miller, 28/02/2007]

Vinous 88

Ruby-red. Ripe, toasty and high-toned, with notes of dark berries, cherry liqueur, succulent herbs, coffee and dark chocolate. Round and quite ripe, with expressive cherry flavor accented by mocha and cured tobacco. Broad and deep on the finish, with solid structure and a warm note of blackberry liqueur.
