Description:

Aalto P.S. 2001

Ribera del Duero
"Not surprisingly, in a vintage that afforded great raw materials, the 2001 PS is out of this world. Smoke, graphite, blackberry liqueur, blueberries, violets, and spicy oak jump from the glass of this inky/purple-colored 2001. Texturally and color-wise, it is reminiscent of dry vintage port. With terrific purity and a full-bodied, rich palate that offers multiple dimensions, there is a seamlessness to this wine even though it remains young and unevolved. I would recommend another 1-2 years of cellaring (as hard as that may be), and consuming it over the following 10-12 years." R. Parker, 98 pts. 04/04
6 bottles (owc)
