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. M.S.

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. -Jay Miller

Licorice chocolate and tobacco notes add interest. This is thick with full tannins but stays plush and lively through the finish. Drink now through 2016. 500 cases imported. -TM

Sexy highly complex bouquet of blackberry blueberry truffle and smoked meat with a sexy floral undertone. Weighty yet graceful offering sweet dark berry flavors and suave candied violet and clove qualities. Impressively fresh and focused wine with strong finishing spiciness and a lingering note of dark berry preserves-and drinking well right now. -Josh Raynolds
