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.

The 1,000 case luxury cuvee, the 2004 Aquilon, was fashioned from the winery's oldest vines and best material. Revealing nearly off the chart ripeness, richness, and intensity, it will undoubtedly be controversial, separating traditionalists from more progressive tasters, but I loved it. It will be interesting to see how this tour de force in winemaking ages. It is the vino equivalent of a Hummer four-wheel drive vehicle.

Powerful yet expressive, this rich red overflows with blackberry, chocolate and mineral flavors, accented with cinnamon and tobacco. Plush and heady, yet remains balanced. Drink now through 2014.
