2014 Aatto - 92 pts from Isaac James Baker

Aro­mas show tart straw­ber­ries, cran­ber­ries, it’s real­ly spicy with sour ale, smoke, pep­per and herbal notes. Plum and chewy on the palate, vel­vety and volup­tuous but also bright and live­ly. Straw­ber­ry jam, rasp­ber­ries, rich fruit but so juicy. Super pep­pery with bacon fat and olives, a real­ly fun and deli­cious salty pres­ence that bal­ances out the punchy fruit. Love the min­er­al-laden, long fin­ish. Three-to-five years would real­ly do won­ders for this wine but it is gor­geous now. 48% Counoise, 38% Mourve­dre, 14% Grenache.
