Not very aromatic. Full bodied, dense and layered with loads of fruit and nice structure on the palate. Very long finish. Nice fruit with vanilla oak tones. Spicy fruit. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/24/10

Absolutely lovely structure, density, flavor and aroma. Leather, pencil, prune come to mind. It's such a beautiful tempranillo/wine, it's reminiscent of a Vega Sicilia. Fine tannins which could help it age gracefully for another decade or so .....or, if you can't wait to consume it - like me, it's perfectly capable of gently cutting trough a flavorful steak. What a delight! Enjoy!

Granatrote Farbe. In der Nase Noten nach Blaubeeren, Himbeer und einen likörigen Touche nach Brombeere. Am Gaumen opulent, fruchtig.

A beautiful but enormous style of red wine with char, leather and saturated black fruit aromas. There's also some lemony oak that will shed itself with time. Overall, it's rich, delicious and a real fruit bomb with chocolate, vanilla, caramel, coffee... Wine Enthusiast. A Tempranillo wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2006 Aalto PS 1500ml

The opaque purple 2006 Aalto offers up a brooding bouquet of wood smoke, graphite, espresso, leather, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a full-bodied, dense, layered, extracted wine with loads of fruit and the structure to match. Impec... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The glass-staining 2006 Aalto PS was aged for 32 months in 70% new French oak. It emits a super-expressive aromatic array of pain grille, crushed stone, lavender, spice box, and blackberry. Firm and structured on the palate, it has a boatload of inte... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Tempranillo wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2006 Aalto PS 1500ml

Dunkles Granatrot. In der Nase toastig, balsamisch, floral und nach wilden dunklen Früchten. Am Gaumen ein extrem powervoller, stukturierter, reichhaltiger Wein mit einem extrem langen Finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Wine Enthusiast: A beautiful but enormous style of red wine with char, leather and saturated black fruit aromas. There's also some lemony oak that will shed itself with time. Overall, it's rich, delicious and a real fruit bomb with chocolate, vanilla, caramel, coffee and mocha, all of which are reflections of the oak aging it sees. PS stands for s seleccionados, and it's really an example of the new school in full session. Best 2013-2017 due to its heft and extraction. (Oct 2010)
