Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero
Wine AdvocateRating: 95/100 - As reviewed by Wine Advocate on 6/05.
International Wine Cellar(1989 Vintage) Rating: 95(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 109, July/August 2003. ($337) Saturated dark, fresh red. Exotic dried fruits complicated by minerals, cedar, cigar box and nuts on the nose. Huge, dense and solid, with great sappy redcurrant and wild strawberry sweetness buffered by powerful acids. With its huge concentration and extraordinarily chewy extract, this has fruit of steel. The wine's explosive, extremely long finish and great thrust go beyond 99.99% of the world's wines.
