2006 Vega Sicilia "Único" Ribera del Duero 3-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Incredibly floral and beautiful with dark berry, spice, cedar and mint. Chinese plums. Asian spices. Bark. Tea. Full body, dense and so soft and complex. The finish goes on for minutes. Endless and fine. January 2017 release. This reminds me of the gorgeous 1991 or 1964. Drink forever. A wine that you want to spend time with." (1/2018) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The iconic wine from Vega Sicilia in the market in 2018 is the 2006 Único, which was released after the sale of the 2007 and 2008 vintages because they thought it needed more time in bottle. 2006 was an early vintage, with t ...Read More »

2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero Back In Stock!
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 »

2005 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

97 points Vinous: "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 John Gilman: "The new release of 2005 Vega Sicilia Único is an absolutely stunning wine in the making, with great depth, ...Read More »

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

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 each bottling but it actually makes little difference. The Reserva Especials are blended to a house style d ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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, although the quick evolution of the bottle once opened made me hesitate about its drinking window. Drink 2014-2024. (LG)" (8/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This harmonious red is balanced and deep, offering ripe plum and currant flavors, with black pepper, tobacco, licorice and mineral accents. Delivers plenty of structure, with well-integrated tannins and lively acidity. The wine remains ...Read More »

1970 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

98 points John Gilman: "The 1970 vintage of Vega Sicilia Único is one of the greatest to ever emerge from these cellars and I have been smitten by this wine since it was first released in the mid-1990s. The bouquet today is flat out beautiful, soaring from the glass in a very refined blend of black cherries, blood orange, gentle nuttiness, a lovely array of spices, raw cocoa, cigar wrapper, complex soil nuances and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and one of the most elegant vintages of Único ever produced, with a rock solid core of fruit, laser-like fo ...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 »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

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 »

2008 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

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 »

2009 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

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 »
