The wine in this lot has a score of 94 from Wine Spectator and the following tasting note -Hard to resist this lush, modern red, with its mouthwatering blackberry and boysenberry fruit and lavish toasty vanilla oak. But has plenty of structure, with ripe tannins and fresh acidity, so give it time to develop. Drink now through 2015." (12/06) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate- "The 2003 Aalto PS is purple/black with an unusually expressive nose for this hot vintage. It reveals smoke, toast, vanilla spice, blueberry, and blackberry jam. This is followed by a fleshy wine with excellent depth and full-body. It does, however, narrow out slightly in the finish" (02/07) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar- "Saturated ruby. Expressive, very ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberry, bitter chocolate and printer's ink. Densely packed and almost porty in its sweet display of earthy, musky cherry and plum, with exotic hints of lavender, candied licorice and black pepper. Finishes with building sweetness and a deep, extremely persistent flavor of cherry preserves.
