New Release: Vega Sicilia Unico 2009, Valbuena 2014 and Reserva Especial 2019
04 December 2018

“The elevage is complex, building from smaller barrels to larger barrels over a period of six years, finishing in larger vats. Then four years in bottle. Non-sequential releasing with the 2005 and 2006 being released after the 2007 and 2008. This 2009 has good ripeness and deep fruit-presence on the nose with rich red and dark plums, subtly earthy spice, cedar and fresh tobacco. There’s terrific concentration on the palate and very ripe dark-plum, blueberry and cherry flavors. The tannins are fresh, very long and carry flavors deep. Natural freshness and effortless power, too — a hallmark of Unico! Very open-knit and approachable now, this will age for two decades easily, and then some more”. - 98 Points, James Suckling. Valbuena 2014 is back with a bang after the more challenging 2013 vintage. Bramble and black raspberry fruit intermingle with blackcurrant, sweet spice and toasted vanilla components. More and more 2014 is proving itself a lovely vintage in Ribera del Duero; a plentiful crop with no disease pressure or rush to harvest. Long hang time has resulted in very clear, bright aromas and a tweak to the elevage saw the second year’s ageing take place in large vats rather than small barrels. A gentler hand that aims for finesse rather than heft has produced a quality Valbuena that we happily recommend.    Read More
