The Wine Advocate 96 pts - Jay Miller
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.

Wine Spectator 91 pts - Thomas Matthews
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.

Wine Enthusiast 90 pts - Michael Schachner
As mammoth wines go, this is rock-solid. Sixteen percent alcohol tells you that it's strapping and ripe. But more than just being big and fiery, it's pleasant and sophisticated. The nose offers mocha and raisin, and the palate delivers a feast of toasty, vanilla-edged berry and plum flavors. Fresh and balanced given the level of ripeness and oak treatment. Drink through 2010.

Description:
Nice perfume of slate, violets, and cherry compote. There is beautiful integration of oak, tannin, and acidity.
