Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

This expressive wine is rich with fragrance and deep on the palate. It features a mouthwatering mix of very ripe plum and prune flavors, chocolate and smoke notes, firm but not aggressive tannins and clean acidity. Though still young, it's almost imp...
