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.
"A huge load with sophistication and style to go with tons of raw power. Tobacco, balsam wood and pure blackberry aromas are stylish and enticing. Shows body and structure on the palate along with black fruit, mocha, chocolate and toast
flavors. Long and heavenly on the finish. Drink now
"Inky violet. A hypnotic bouquet evokes black and blue fruits, incense, smoky oak spices and potpourri. Deeply pitched but energetic, offering sappy blackberry and boysenberry flavors that stain the palate. Becomes spicier with and picks up notes of candied lavender and vanilla. The bright finish echoes with floral and spice notes, finishing with excellent cut.
