    (Vega Sicilia Unico (Ribera del Duero)) Even before we have a taste this wine has a remarkable story; a green harvest taking 40% of the crop, a yield thereafter of 20 hl/ha, and seven years in vat and barrel before release in 2009. The blend is 93% Tempranillo and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. A great, sweet, concentrated fruit nose here. Fabulously concentrated aromatic character, with layers of red and back fruits, sweet and well delineated, with a lifted freshness despite all those years in wood. It also has that complex, meaty, spicy-savoury beef stock element to the fruit that can make the wines of this region so fascinating. Superb character. On the palate it is broad, warming, concentrated and still remarkably tannic, but also very balanced and correct. Great breadth and depth, all very well defined with evolving complexity already. This very fine effort will go for decades. Superb, a vin de garde I would be delighted to have in the cellar.
