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!
Barrel Sample Inky purple in color. The nose is layered iwth chocolate, minerals, black fruits, cherries and more. Tangy with a high acidity and rich dense tannins. The palate is a mess of flavors that have yet to sort themselves out. Chocolate, dark fruits, rich spices, and more. This wine appears to be a monster. 4.5/5 [NR]
Chocolate, blackcherry, and dark candied fruits, this wine is a joy to smell! Huge acidty with fine rich tannins that coat your mouth. The fruit in the nose follow through to the mouth with chocolate coverd cherries coming to mind. Tasty wine that is a joy to drink. 4/5 [NR]
Nice bottle of wine. Gets better with decanting. Tastes the chocolate and the dried fruit. Tannins are still hard. Would love to wait a few years and try it again.

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