2000 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 91

With good color, the wine is lighter in style and lacking the concentration and depth found in the best vintages of Vega Sicilia. More interesting on the nose than the palate with its smoke, earth and wild cherry aromas. The spicy, fruit was fresh, but overall the wine lacked excitement.

1995 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 97

Vega Sicilia, along with the single vineyard Guigal wines is a contender for one of the best, as well as consistent, high-end wines, Still young in appearance, as well as in taste, this concentrated, fresh, ripe, complex, deep wine is packed with ripe fruits, spice and earthy notes. While it’s drinking great today, it’s only going to improve over the next few decades.

With an incredible nose of barbecue, smoke, charcoal, earth, black cherry jam, mint, thyme and earth, you know you are in for a special treat. On the palate, this wine coats your mouth with soft, velvet textured fruit. Perfectly ripe and over ripe plums, black raspberries, spice, jam and spearmint that seem to remain on your palate for close to 50 seconds. What great treat and an even better wine. I wish I owned some.

1994 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 95

Fresh, sweet, bright, balanced and flashy the spicy fruits and soft, assertive fruits began to pop with about 2 hours in the decanter. There was a distinctive floral element in the nose I liked, but it was the length and harmony on the palate, with its layers of fresh fruits that sealed the deal.

1989 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 97

A cornucopia of spices, black cherry, blackberry, flowers, molasses and red fruits easily made their way to your nose. Powerful, rich and concentrated, this fresh, opulent, round wine offered a rare blend of grace, purity and elegance. Vega Sicilia once again proves why it's one of the world's great wines.

1973 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 91

Medium bodied, mature, and perhaps starting to fade a bit, the wine was still a treat to experience. Much of the fruit has faded into secondary aromas at this stage. Lacking the concentration and complexity of the top vintages, with some tartness now popping up in the finish, this probably should be enjoyed sooner than later before the fruit continues to fade.

1970 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 98

This compelling, showing stopper of a wine does not quit. The bouquet, with its earth, black cherry, licorice, smoke and spicy personality does not let go. On the palate, the wine is deep, concentrated and long, with freshness, spice and a nutty quality that remains in your mouth for close to 60 seconds.

1968 Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Único  (Ribera del Duero) 96

Lush, round, dense and rich, this exotic, powerful, intense wine builds with layer after layer of ripe black cherries, smoke, earth and spice. Served blind, it was hard to believe this wine is not far from 50 years of age. Now, if only I could afford it, or find more friends with bottles in their cellar...
