Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 3.° Reserva 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

full dark color, makes me think of bulls blood. Stinky right out of the bottle, leathery with dark cherry and earth, minerally, shale, a hint of citrus, super sweet wood notes, a bit of carob, and a seductive cough drop note. very complex and dynamic nose. This is showing a bit more elegantly than previous bottles, perfectly integrated, a muscular dancer, earthy fresh fruit in the mouth with very vibrant red fruits, tightly coiled strawberries on the finish which is richly minerally and delicately tobacco tinged. A consistently great bottle of wine.

Tasted with friends in 11/07. Fantastic wine with a very smooth finish. Definitely ready to drink now. Much longer may see this wine on a decline.
