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. Impeccably balanced and exceptionally long in the finish, this large-scaled effort will benefit from 5-7 years of additional cellaring and provide a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. Bodegas y Vinedos Aalto is the estate of the renowned Mariano Garcia, former winemaker at Vega Sicilia.
