Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, October 2010
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... 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 and mocha all of which are reflections of the oak aging it sees. PS stands for s seleccionados and it's really an example of the new school in full session. Best 2013-2017 due to its heft and extraction.

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... 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 intense succulent spicy fruit ripe tannin and impeccable balance. Drink this lengthy powerful effort from 2016 to 2036. In truth aside from the $55 difference in price there is not much separating the Aalto from the Aalto PS in the 2006 vintage.
