96 points Rhone Report: "The flagship offering and a blend of 100% old vine Garnacha, the 2009 Bodegas Alto Moncayo Aquilon, aged in 70% new French oak for 24 months, is brilliant wine that displays uncommon levels of finesse and elegance paired with decadent, hedonistic fruit. Showing gorgeous aromas of raspberry creme, vanilla, jam coated toast, and fresh flowers on the nose, this medium to full-bodied Garnacha is perfectly balanced and proportioned on the palate, showing an overall elegant, finesse-driven frame that.s covered with sweet fruit, a seamless, pure texture, and very fine, polished tannin on the finish. It's certainly approachable now (needs two hours in a decanter), yet it will be even better in 2-3 years, and drink well for a decade or longer. (Mar 2012)"
Importer notes: "100% Garnacha. 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. 350 cases produced."
