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 »

2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors’ Choice * Lightly baked and hinting at raisin and fine herbs, the bouquet on this benchmark Spanish red enfolds aromas of tobacco, moss and ripe tomato. In the mouth, it’s elegant and silky but also full and expansive. Flavors of baked berry fruits, baking spices, herbs and cocoa finish with a light coating of toast. This is an amazingly complete, exemplary wine that’s just entering its prime. If past vintages of Unico are an indication, it will age well through 2035." (5/2015)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pablo Alvarez described 2004 as a textbook vintage with perfect tempe ...Read More »

1998 Vega Sicilia Valbuena Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker: "The 1998 Valbuena is better than the 1987 Unico, and probably as good as the 1989 Unico, at least over the next decade. Extremely full-bodied, it offers up notes of smoke, graphite, toasty oak, caramel, black cherry liqueur, and cassis. Opulent and sumptuous, it is both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Anticipated maturity: now-2016." (02/03) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely focus and balance. Crisp, juicy black cherry and blackberry flavors are backed by toasty oak and lively acidity. Firm, well-integrated tannins. Drin... Read More »

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

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I must confess that I am not such an ardent supported of the Reserva Especiale as others. It is not that I dislike the blend, but I find it less intellectual satisfying without a temporal "anchor" i.e. vintage. 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 ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

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 graceful through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2027. 6,500 cases made." (10/2015) Jancis Robinson: "A very difficult year – 'this is not a wine, it’s a miracle.' Plenty of developed, earthy aromas on the nose, charming red fruit and lovely coffee grounds – but there is indeed a (comparative) lack of body and concentration betrayin ...Read More »

2006 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero New!
2006 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pingus is a spectacular effort. A glass-staining saturated opaque purple, it delivers an other-worldly perfume of smoke, lavender, mineral, scorched earth, and an amalgam of kinky black fruits. Voluptuous on the palate in a measured way, it has superb balance, layered, complex flavors, ripe tannin that is entirely covered by the fruit, and a decade of aging potential. This monumental wine will evolve effortlessly for 10-15 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. (JM)" (6/2010)95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple. Powerful, mineral-driven aromas o ...Read More »
