    April 14, 2016 - Vega Sicilia master class. Zita Rojkovitch ásamt Vínskólanum og Beri ehf. (Hótel Reykjavík Centrum, Aðalstræti 16): Smá brúnir tónar í jaðri. Jarðartónar í ilmi. Kirsuber og smá vanilla í bragði. Svakaleg tannín. Mikil sýra en samt frábært jafnvægi. Ótrúlega gott vín. Líklega rétt að detta inn í drykkjarglugga. Gæti jafnvel átt eftir að hækka um 1 til 2 punkta með meiri þroska.

    November 5, 2015 - Part of an outstanding vertical tasting at 67 Pall Mall. We had the privilege of trying 15 vintages of Unico from 1980 to 2007, and my personal favourite turned out to be the 2004 (although the prime time 1986 was a very close second). The wine is still in its infancy stage and just starting to show its amazing potential. Boasting a deep crimson core it is packed with vibrant aromas of toasted caramel, damp forest floor, black currant and fresh picked flowers. It is medium to full bodied and soft as silk as it envelops the palate with delightfully intertwined layers of cassis, vanilla, tobacco leaf and cedar wood. All of this on the backdrop of an exquisite minerality which makes the wine even more "Unico". The velvety finish lingers on and on. The 2004 needs more time to blossom; let it cruise in the cellar for another 2 to 3 years, and enjoy it over the next 2 decades. A stunner!

    October 31, 2015 - Pure infanticide. Should have aerated in decanted 5-6 hours instead of a measly one hour. Would like to re-rate this wine with a proper decant, but being a big Unico fan the 04 is one of their excellent vintages.
