[98 pts Wine Advocate] The 2004 Aalto PS is expressive aromatically on the palate this voluptuous wine reveals elegance combined with power. Large in scale but light on its feet it has beautiful balance density and concentration. It can be enjoyed now but should evolve for 12-15 years and drink well through 2050. [95 Wine Spectator] Expressive and intense this impressive red marries elegance and power delivering rich flavors of blackberry pomegranate dark chocolate mineral and spice over ripe firm tannins. The texture is as smooth as velvet the finish long and sweet. Best from 2008 through 2018.
