2000 Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena
|Vineyard:||Bodegas Vega Sicilia|
International Wine CellarRating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 122, September/October 2005. ($150) Bright medium ruby. Aromas of plum, mocha, tobacco and nutty oak. Sweet and round but firmly structured, with concentrated, ripe flavors of raspberry, redcurrant and tobacco enlivened by bright, harmonious acidity. No rough edges, even if the long, complex, sweetly tannic finish features some youthfully clenched flavors of cherry cola, sweet tobacco and herbs.
