    Winemaker's Notes:

    "The superb 2002 Aquilon is a selection of old vine Grenache from hillside vineyards. A gorgeously complex perfume of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, cassis, minerals, flowers, and sweet oak is followed by a full-bodied, massively-endowed, pure, textured, well-balanced wine. Given the limited production and high quality of this fabulous effort, its high price can not be considered unfair. It should drink well for a decade. Australian winemaker Chris Ringland oversees the winemaking at this estate, a superb new discovery by broker Jorge Ordonez. This full-throttle, robust, exuberant, super-concentrated 100% Grenache offering may be the finest wine to ever emerge from this backwater Spanish appellation." - Wine Advocate

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated medium ruby. Roasted blackberry, grilled nuts, minerals and smoky oak on the explosive nose. Thick, dense and creamy, with supersweet, liqueur-like flavors of dark berries and maraschino cherry lifted by a mineral component. Lush and mouthfilling but also sappy and vibrant. Finishes with extremely fine, powdery tannins and superb, slow-building persistence. This went though its malolactic fermentation in all new French and American barrels, but a portion of the wine was aged in tank.
