Big and strong, a bit of a bruiser. This is a smack you in the face, bold tempranillo. I like a bit more refinement and balance, but this shows what a Ribera Del Duero temp can be!

This is an outstanding value for an exceptional Spanish wine. It is rich, powerful and loaded with concentrated ripe dark fruit andmdash; black raspberry, blueberry and black cherry. Dark crimson red in color, the wine is fresh and drinkable now, but is also age-worthy. Beautifully balanced with spice, oak and tannins, the mouthwatering finish goes on and on. Perfect for pairing with braised beef, spicy sausages or a juicy grilled steak.

Opaque purple color. Intensely perfumed nose displays spicy dark berry and floral character, with zesty minerals and black tea adding complexity. Pliant blackberry and cherry flavors are impressively fresh, becoming deeper and sweeter with air. An admirably balanced wine, playing depth against vivacity and finishing with outstanding clarity and length. This is the most elegant example of this bottling Iandrsquo;ve tasted.

The 2005 Aalto, made from 100% Tinto Fino, is a deep purple color with an enticing nose of wood smoke, bacon, floral notes, spice box, and blackberry. This leads to a powerful, layered, intense wine already beginning to show complex flavors. Structured for 5andndash;7 years of further evolution, this strong effort will be at its best from 2015 to 2030.

A Tempranillo wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2005 Aalto PS 750ml

The 2005 Aalto PS is 100% Tinto Fino from vineyards over 60 years of age. It was aged for 32 months in 70% new French oak. Saturated in appearance, the wine offers up notes of pain grille, balsamic, crushed stone, floral notes, and wild black fruits. Exceptionally powerful, focused, and beautifully proportioned, this full-bodied wine is dense, rich, and structured for the long haul. Give this super-long, impressive effort a decade in the cellar and drink it from 2018 to 2040. Patient purchasers will be well rewarded.
