Good musculature texture, medium to long finish. Integrating very nicely and can go another 7 or 8 years.

Monday, June 21, 2010 - The wine was deep purple. On the nose is a beautiful mix of vanilla, light toast, cassis, and strawberry jam. The first sip was a veritable explosion of fruits and toasty oak. Black cherry, berries, and vanillan ended with a kiss of cinnamon. This had a full body with a smooth silky finish. Definitely a Spanish wine in the "new style".

2005 Aalto

Created  May 27, 2010
A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
