2005 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2005 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "Fermented in large oak tanks and aged for six years in new French and American oak barriques. Saturated ruby. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh ripe red fruits, floral oils, pipe tobacco and incense take on sexy vanilla and woodsmoke nuances as the wine opens up. Densely packed yet shockingly lithe on the palate, offering intense cherry liqueur, red currant and spicecake flavors given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Shows superb energy and clarity, finishing sweet, smoky and extremely long; velvety tannins add gentle grip. (JR)" (5/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly Tempra ...Read More »

2009 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Valbuena was harvested early, the result of a warm summer. It’s mostly Tempranillo complemented with 5% Merlot. The wine matured for five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 16 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), four months in used barrels and then four more months in the vats before being bottled in May 2011. 180,000 bottles produced. It has some reductive notes and would benefit from some time in a decanter, where you’d start appreciating its background of cherries which feels very classical and serious. The palate is ...Read More »

2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Valbuena was cropped from a vintage with a very dry and warm summer that resulted in very healthy grapes. Since the 2010 vintage, this wine is fermented plot by plot following the findings from a soils study they did. The élevage is in French and American oak barrels that on average lasts some 18 months followed by another 18 months in 20,000-liter oak vats, but of course some lots had more time in barrique and others more time in vat. It has ripe tannins and a powerful mouthfeel but with a soft texture. Even if it's not widely mentioned, it alw ...Read More »

2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since the 2010 harvest, they ferment plot by plot, and it shows. This Valbuena has almost 100 components in it, smaller lots, all of them corresponding to a plot of vines. It has all the signs of being one of the best vintages ever for this second wine from Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Merlot that matured five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 18 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then five months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2013. 2010 seems to have the exuberan ...Read More »

Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial 3-pack in OWC (2012 release) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial 3-pack in OWC (2012 release) (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Release is slightly less expressive aromatically than its 2 peers but that is splitting hairs. Bodegas Vega Sicilia remains a benchmark for the world’s great red wines. The Valbuena bottling receives 3 years in barrel and 2 years in bottle prior to release. On the occasion of my visit in May 2010, the three Reserva Especials already in bottle and awaiting release were tasted side by side. They are identified (for the purposes of this review only) as the 2013 Release, the 2012 Release, and the 2011 Release. I was not told what vintages are in e ...Read More »

2011 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Valbuena was fermented plot by plot, something they started after a deep soil study in the 2010 vintage. 2011 was a very warm and ripe vintage in the zone, and the challenge was to keep the freshness. There are more black fruit aromas, subtle spices and hints of complexity, as well as tertiary aromas that are quite classic and turn more balsamic with time in the glass. Again, this is very different form the 2012 Alión, rounder, riper, richer, more polished, mellow, soft, quite exuberant and hedonistic. (LG)" (10/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Flavors of black cherry, kirs ...Read More »

2008 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Valbuena is produced with Tempranillo and 7% Merlot and Malbec from a cold, rainy season and late harvest. It reminds me of the Riberas of yesteryear, sharper with a slight rusticity, long and sharp. Once fermented, the wine matured for seven months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 12 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then six months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2011. The aromas are subtle, there is fruit, but there is soil and above all there is harmony. The palate is long ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Aromas of dried cherry, raspberry, vanilla, mocha and Cuban tobacco, with smoke and potpourri accents. Supple and expansive, offering sweet, spice-accented red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors that stain the palate. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the very long, smooth, penetrating finish. I find this wine quite approachable now but it has the balance to age. Not the weightiest Valbuena but very impressive for the vintage." (9/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Valbuena is rounded and warmer than the 2006 with lush dark berry fruits interlaced with sce ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They have kept 2005 and 2006 for now, and they are releasing the 2007 Único from a lighter vintage that is accessible already; they will even sell 2008 before 2005 and 2006. 2007 was a cold vintage in Ribera and it produced lighter, fresher wines (perhaps not as problematic as 2008, but there was also frost in 2007). The wine might be a tad lighter than other vintages, but it's more structured than 2008; it combines elegance and power, is nicely balanced and should be able to develop in bottle for many years. (LG)" (10/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This harmonious red is balanced ...Read More »

Vega Sicilia "Único" Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial (2012 release) (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 2012 release of Unico Reserva Especiale is a blend of 1991, 1994 and 1999. It has an immediately seductive bouquet of macerated cherries, lavender, marmalade and candied orange peel. It has wonderful definition and purity. The palate is medium-bodied with lush, rounded tannins on the entry. Vibrant dark berries, maraschino, orange peel and a dash of Chinese 5-spice all vie for attention, whilst the finish is elegant, sensual and beautifully defined. This is very alluring and for want of a better word--sexy. Drink 2013-2025+. (NM)" (8/2012)

2005 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Valbuena is purple/black in color with an alluring nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, espresso, incense, and blackberry. On the palate it reveals its elegant personality, round texture, savory flavors, and lengthy, pure finish. It merits 4-6 years of cellaring to fully unwind and will offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2030. Bodegas Vega Sicilia remains a benchmark for the world’s great red wines. The Valbuena bottling receives 3 years in barrel and 2 years in bottle prior to release. On the occasion of my visit in May 2010, the th ...Read More »
