    Winemaker's Notes:

    A bright deep red color with streaks of violet. Full and elegant on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, such as vanilla, ripe fruits, compote and syrups. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone to the wine; great aromatic persistence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The good news is that the 2003 Alion is even better than the 2002. It has a similar personality but with more depth and concentration as well as structure. The ripe tannins suggest much more will be revealed with another 6-8 years in the bottle. It will drink well for 15+ years thereafter.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep violet. Pungent oak spices accent ripe cherry and plum preserve on the nose, with sweet vanilla and mocha notes to the fore today. Lush and creamy, with ripe dark berry flavors and a strong, building kirsch quality. Weighty and powerful on the broad, sweet finish. Shows the vintage but the ripeness is well managed and there are no rough edges, giving this immediate appeal.
