94 points "The 2004 Aalto has a far different personality than the 2003. More deeply colored, it is also significantly more expressive aromatically. It reveals pain grille, pencil lead, wild blueberry, black raspberry, and blackberry liqueur notes. Opulent on the palate, it has layer upon layer of ripe fruit, and superb length but is still an infant developmentally. Give this top-flight effort 6-8 years to further evolve and drink it through 2032. "

94 points "Deep purple center, tending to a reddish purple border. On the nose, sweet black fruits (plum), with a strong scent of ink, toasty oak and cedar, a bit of menthol, sweet nutmeg and cocoa. On the palate this wine showed itself off with a silky smooth mouthfeel, full bodied, well balanced, not overly acidic, with moderate finishing tannins present after over an hour of oxygenation. The finish was long and elegant. The Aalto 2001 is a very very nice wine. " Best 2006-2013
