(at Hisop - Barcelona) First experience with this wine and I am completely impressed. Medium body and color. Soaring aromatics that are beautiful, refined, warm and complex. Palate is youthful yet regal. Will be brilliant with more age. A stunner. (97+)
A very nice structured wine that reminds me a lot of a Bordeaux. Showing power, complexity and youth at the same time. Could probably be kept in the cellar for a long time but very pleasant to drink right now.
Vega-Sicilia with Pablo Álvarez (Tenzing, Chicago): Crimson color. Stunning nose of anise, spicy fruit, charcoal. Gorgeous palate with pure, gentle fruit flavors accented by a somewhat hot finish. Eye-opening wine for the complexity of aromas and flavors, and the purity and elegance of the palate. Obviously superior to the 2002 and equal to the excellent 2003. Will likely remain lively for a decade or more.
Vega Sicilia Dinner with Pablo Alvarez (Tenzing - Chicago IL): Dense and massive to start with lots of black berries and intense spice throughout. Lush start followed by great energy, lightening the weight, making this an elegant rock star wine. Give this a decade in the cellar and enjoy through your lifetime+.
