The 2005 Aalto made from 100% Tinto Fino is a deep purple color with an enticing nose of wood smoke bacon floral notes spice box and blackberry. This leads to a powerful layered intense wine already beginning to show complex flavors. Structured for 5-7 years of further evolution this strong effort will be at its best from 2015 to 2030.

Intensely perfumed nose displays spicy dark berry and floral character with zesty minerals and black tea adding complexity. Pliant blackberry and cherry flavors are impressively fresh becoming deeper and sweeter with air. An admirably balanced wine playing depth against vivacity and finishing with outstanding clarity and length. This is the most elegant example of this bottling I've tasted.
