Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

The Valbuena offering is a brilliant introduction to the winery. The 2002, froma supposedly average vintage, is purple in color with an expressive nose ofpain grille, earth, herbs, lead pencil, and blackberries. It offers layers ofripe fruit, excellent depth and concentration, and enough stuffing to drinkwell for the next 10+ years.<br/>92/100 Points (Jay Miller, Wine Advocate, Feb 2007)

Having skipped over releasing a 2001 due to frost damage, the 2002 Unico is a result of a severe selection as attested by the label which shows that just 42,932 bottles were produced instead of 108,536 in 2000.
