Wine Advocate

93-95 Points, Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "When I tasted it, the 2016 Aalto had already been blended and taken out of the barrels, waiting to be bottled in a couple of weeks. It's still young and tender, with peachy aromas, a little creamy and with a soft palate where the tannins are fine-grained. In 2016, they used more vineyards, grapes from their own plots and others purchased from suppliers. They expect to fill some 280,000 bottles in late June 2018. 2016 was a higher-yielding year that provided fresh and balanced wines. It should age nicely." 08/18

Decanter

93 Points, Sarah Jane Evans, Decanter: “Gloriously aromatic Tinto Fino with black cherry, liquorice and sweet spices. Fleshy, with a bright line of acidity that cuts the richness. Fine-grained tannins. A wine that repays cellaring.” 12/19

94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com: “Not far off the more limited production cuvée, the 2016 Aalto is another brilliant wine from this estate and is all Tempranillo brought up in 50% new oak. This ripe, sexy wine delivers loads of crème de cassis, vanilla, dried flowers, and spice box notes, with just a hint of background oak. Pure, incredibly well balanced, with sweet tannins, and medium to full body, it’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for 15 to 20 years.” 04/19
