Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)

Bright purple. Pungent, intensely perfumed nose displays black and blue fruits, violet, Indian spices and a lively, peppery note. Sweet and lush on entry, then smoky and intense in the middle, offering brawny blackberry and mulberry flavors and suggestions of bitter chocolate and cracked pepper. Ripe but fresh, with a juicy, long finish that features notes of smoke and blackberry. This is pretty powerful for the vintage and deserves some patience.

Earthy, with dark currants, blackberry and spices, with some herbal notes. The briars and spices remind me of Zinfandel, but this is a much deeper and more complex wine than Zinfandel. Great finish.

About This Producer


Founded in 1999 and located in Ribera del Duero, on Spain's north-central plateau, Bodegas Aalto produces critically acclaimed wines from old vine (30- to 90-years old) Tempranillo. Aged for two or more years in a combination of new and neutral French and American oak, Aalto's wines are on track to compete with the neighboring Ribera estates of Vega Sicilia and Tinto Pesquera.
