Η άποψη του Mark Squires για το eRobertParker.com

This 2008 Reserve was aged in French oak for 18 months. It is wonderful. Mouth coating and deep, with concentration levels not seen on any of Alpha's other wines, this is simply gripping and intense. Yet, it is hardly one dimensional. It is also earthy and complex, and as it airs out it becomes a multi-dimensional wine.  (93/100).
(Αυτό το Reserve του 2008 παλαιώθηκε σε Γαλλικά δρύινα [βαρέλια] για 18 μήνες. Είναι υπέροχο. Βαθύ και μεστό, με επίπεδα συμπύκνωσης που δεν βρίσκονται σε κανένα άλλο κρασί του ΑΛΦΑ, είναι απλά συναρπαστικό και έντονο. Εντουτοις, δεν είναι καθόλου μονοδιάστατο. Είναι επίσης γήινο και πολύπλοκο, και καθώς αερίζεται γίνεται ένα πολυδιάστατο κρασί.)
