Introduction

Had some great pizza with two vintages of Sean Thackrey's Aquila.


Flight 1 (2 notes)

Red
2000 Sean Thackrey Sangiovese Aquila Eaglepoint Ranch USA, California, North Coast, Mendocino County
90 points
For being 11 years old now this wine is still going strong. Nice brick red coloring. Again very aromatic, like the '02 I drank alongside this. Nice delicate red berries, some spice/mint and almost a tobacco/meat characteristic.

Brick red in color, very aromatic. Nice floral, minty, berries and a little meaty and earthy notes as well. The alcohol bite of its youth has dissipated, smooth silky tannins. Nice wine.
