2016 Bodegas Alto Moncayo 'Aquilon' Garnacha, Campo de Borja, Spain (750ml)
Very deep red, scarlet rim. Aromas of minerals and vanilla. Hints of raisins and dark chocolate. As typical of the vintage, power and intensity with disarming elegance.
Goes well with beef, pork, game based stews and rice dishes.
Opaque violet. Primary black and blue fruits, vanilla, mocha, incense and a hint of potpourri on the powerfully scented nose; a suave oak spice nuance emerges with air. Velvety and expansive on the palate, offering deeply concentrated blackberry, boysenberry, espresso and exotic spice flavors and a touch of candied violet. The youthfully tannic, appealingly sweet and strikingly long finish leaves behind spicecake and dark fruit preserve notes. Drinking window: 2026 - 2037
- Vinous, 95 pts.
