94 Pts. Guiía Peñín

PS means Pagos Seleccionadas, selected single vineyards, and this is a terrific expression of the best of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) from Aalto’s portfolio of vineyard sites. The palate is alive with velvety black fruits, with  a clean, mineral edge and wrapped in cedar and smoke to add a degree of richness and texture. Very finely balanced now but a wine that is made for the long haul.
