    August 12, 2017 - Decanted 3 hours. Heavy tannins. Plenty of future potential.

    July 17, 2017 - Medium purple, with a lovely nose of blackberries, caramel, red licorice and allspice. The wine is soft but has a striking balance between the fruit (ripe but not overripe), acids (modest for a Spanish red) and tannins, with a very clean, mineral-inflected finish that lasts a minute or more. A response to those who think oak should lurk in the background: here, the oak is very evident, yet it works. Mature now, but will hold for a decade or longer.

    February 26, 2017 - Hedonistic in the best way.
    Rich red and dark fruits. Carmelized sugar.
    Aromatically beautiful and lush on the palate.
    Tannins still have grip.
    This is in a great place at the moment and I will wait a couple years before opening another.

    February 24, 2017 - Unico tasting (27 different vintages) at the Rheingau Gourmet Festival 2017: full deep violett; vanilla, oak and cherry; lots of tannins.

    This Unico has reached Kindergarden. Can develop into an excellent wine.

    Vintages 4th flight: 2000-2002-2003-2004-2007
