Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 1994
This is the reference wine of Vega Sicilia, although it shares its special character with the rest of the wines from the winery. It comes from the older vines on the estate and is made with the varieties of tempranillo and more cabernet sauvignon than merlot. Although it is old, the red wine maintains its liveliness thanks to its good acidity level compensated by solid alcohol content. It has an intense ripe cherry colour, with the lively edge of a wine that is always at its best. The aroma prevails with hints of roast from the wood, and touches of hazelnut from its oxidative evolution from its years in the cask. It has generous tastes of old but clean wood, with dry tannins that are pleasantly embittered by the oak, together with the sensation of its light sweetness of its alcohol. It is a pedigree wine with a long, lasting taste.

Has the character of an excellent Rivera del Duero wine. Grate bouquet and a perfect balance between wood and fruit. Very complex.
nice wine but not like the former old vintages like 1990 -

Granat. Vielschichtiges Bouquet; schwarze Früchte, Edelholznoten und Aprikosen. Kirschen im samtigen, frischen und dennoch warmen und geschmeidigen Gaumen. Im Finale Zimt-Zedern-Noten. Das ist wahrlich königliche Grösse!

A wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 1994 Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 Year Old Tinto 750ml
Unico, from the legendary Vega Sicilia winery, is only produced in exceptional years. This wine, made from mostly Tempranillo and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, is barrel-aged for a minimum of 10 years before being released. Intense complexity and layer upon layer of co-mingling flavors makes this an unforgettable wine. This wine will continue to age for many decades to come.
