Bodegas Alto Moncayo Garnacha Campo de Borja Aquilon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 94 points by Rhone Report: The top wine of the estate and 100% Garnacha. Aquilon has a splendid perfume of slate, violets, and cherry compote. There is beautiful integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, a smooth texture, layers of flavor, and exceptional length. 350 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 94 points by Rhone Report: ...sweet, vanilla-laced raspberry and blackberry fruits, graphite, flowers, and spice box characteristics on the nose. Full bodied and seamless on the palate, with a polished, smooth texture, beautiful integration of its components, and a long mineral-laced finish, this stays light and fresh, carrying an overall elegant, yet fruit driven profile...

Intense Opaque Purple Violet in the glass. Opens with a musky baked ripe red cherry with just a bit of raisin spice. Onward to milk and dark chocolate, plum, and cola. In the mouth - a mouthful. Minutes and minutes long lovely finish. Perfectly balanced Tannins and Acidity, and while it seems perfect now, seems like it will continue to age and age. This is one of the best I have had.
