International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 94
($178; 100% garnacha) Glass-staining ruby. Finely etched raspberry, blackberry, floral and mineral aromas expand in the glass while retaining impressive clarity. Silky and sweet, with pinot-like red berry and cherry flavors, a seamless texture and a big jolt of smoky minerals on the back. Balances racy precision with great flavor impact, picking up Asian spices and candied rose with air. The very long finish repeats the red fruit and floral qualities with conviction. If only the current set of Australian wines from consulting winemaker Chris Ringland had even half the clarity and elegance of these. (Fine Estates from Spain, Dedham, MA)

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 96
Even better (although you will pay dearly for the upgrade) is the flagship 2006 Aquilon. It offers a similar room-filling kinky perfume that is totally captivating. On the plush palate, gobs of pure black cherry and black raspberry fruit conceal the fact that this wine has enough ripe tannin to evolve for at least a decade. This hedonistic effort is impeccably balanced and should provide extreme pleasure from 2015 to 2030. -Jay Miller

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 91
Coffee and smoky oak notes frame plum and cranberry flavors in this plush red. Firm tannins keep it structured, giving way to a mineral and floral finish. It's dense but not heavy. Drink now through 2012. 350 cases made. –TM
