Opened and poured. A bit shy on the begnning but then expanding in a complex bouquet of dark fruits, figs and leather with an earth note. Good balance with tannins fully integrated. Excellent now will last and improve for a long time.

Another great showing from this unique wine.
Deeply colored with brick-colored hues at the rim, it had a deep, sensual, old-fashioned nose typical of Unico. Notes of leather, tar, molasses, chocolate, orange rind, old spice, wood, balsamic nuances and a healthy dose of volatile acidity. Suave on the palate which had depth and staying power. More rustic, fuller and more powerful than top growth Bordeaux's of similar age, maybe with less finesse.
A great wine.
Drank at Yiannis 50th birthday celebration: may you grow forever young my friend!!

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

Medium-deep garnet with pretty flashes of ruby on swirling. 12 hours slow air in open bottle. Tightly wound nose of mineral and dark fruits. More expressive on the palate, loads of sweet red fruit, juicy acidity and smooth tannins. There is an ever present faint fuminess of alcohol but no unpleasant heat on the palate, and this displays the usual Único velvet mouthfeel. Youthful in its fruit and structure, but a bit of tertiary soy and straw creep in through the finish. Drink now or hold.

Two torrefied and fruitless bottles, more junk from WineBid. Both bottles looked fine but had obviously been abused and went down the sink.

Restrained and holding back with red berries and strong tannin. Very concentrated with big structure. Super long finish, in fact the tannin lingers for minutes. Its all in perfect harmony. Stunning. Drink 2020-2050.

The cork was fully soaked but the wine was in perfect condition. Medium brick colour. Expressive nose of leather, underfrowth, red cherry fruit. Noticeable but nicely integrated va. Medium-bodied, fully resolved tannins, the fruit is evolved but still alive, and balancing acidity. Very long. Opened this for my 50th birthday since it includes my birth year (1965). A memorable experience. Close to an aged Bordeaux in style.

A perfect wine! Nice fruit and tannins are softening but still quite meaty. Very long finish and it's showing well now. But can age another 10+ years. LO

Decanted 2 1/2 hrs prior to the meal. Surprisingly little sediment with a crystal clear dark ruby color. Initial leather and dark fruit softening with a bold, yet remarkably fine finish. I did not experience the astringency others have commented on until the final few sips easily another hour into the meal. After 40 years, 22 of them in my personal cellar, this wine still had the power and vigor one expects with subtle and delicate secondary and tertiary flavors which one hopes for. I suspect this vintage has at least another 10 good years.

Light funk , dark earth on the nose. With air time white and bell pepper emerge along with vanilla, black pepper, blackberry, tar, nutmeg, dry moss and dried meat. Nose held up well, still vibrant three hours after opening. Blackberry and old leather on the palate with residual tannin still present. Still young although maturity shows at times. Has yet to develop the length of a great wine, but indications that this will become something more in coming years. 93+

Black cherry and dark fruits. Wonderfully concentrated and powerful without being over the top. Great length, the tannins are softened and the acidity is starting to mellow. Some early signs of ageing. For my mind drinking perfectly now. May have some life left, but I doubt it will get better from here.

Opened 10 hours before dinner, no decant. Beautiful and inviting ruby-garnet color, medium depth, clear at the rim. Just a bit shy on the nose, but showing violets, eucalpytus, oak, dark plum, toffee, and a touch of alcohol but nothing obtrusive. Lightish and exceptionally elegant on the palate, dark fruit, eucalypus, ripe tobacco, firmish tannins and good acidity. So smooth, almost feminine, and in such perfect balance, structured to last many years but superb now. Very Unico in style, though showing just a bit less depth and fruit than expected.

One of the best wines I've ever experienced, truly a memorable drinking experience that lived up to its reputation and price tag.
Shared with my wife and 4 friends ... all of us were blown away.
Beautiful layers of fruit and spice, nice balance of acidity and tannin ....massively long finish. Simply sensational.
So pleased we still have 4 other vintages to look forward to enjoying.

Colour is almost brown, and clearly unfiltered.
The nose is very mature, with loads of ripe red and dark berries, raisin, tea, rosehip, earth.
Taste is medium bodied, with incredible length, still fruity, complex and so well integrated. Simply gorgeous!

Vega Sicilia Dinner with Javier Ausas (Berry Bros & Rudd, London): Just about showing some evolution but this is really too young and its not to be approached at this stage. Cholcholate and caramel notes, lots of dark fruit, full and big but not overpowering. nice acidity but much like the much younger 2007 (Papies - NR) this is too young to rate. Nice to have come across it but really one needs to be opening early 90s of these wines, not younger. Will not rate at this stage.

Vega Sicilia Dinner with Javier Ausas (Berry Bros & Rudd, London): Very, Very young. From the very difficult year that was 2007 this is still a baby. Approachable but not evolved at all. Quite a bit of sweet oak, dark fruits, caramel, chocholate. good acidity but this is just a glimpse of what this wine can deliver even at a bad year. Needs a minimum 15 years in bottle. We will not rate at this stage.

Vega Sicilia Dinner with Javier Ausas (Berry Bros & Rudd, London): At year 10 this is now in its drinking window. Very nice nose, expressive, evolved (especially vs the infant 2010, Papies - NR). Still on the young side on the palate, green pepper, quite firmand with good acidity. A very good wine and don't you dar ecall it a second wine.. :) 90-91
