Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 3.° Reserva 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense cherry red with light violet undertones. Nose: Reminiscence of aromas of coffee, tobacco, fruit and lactic hints. All with a very fine backdrop of perfectly integrated wood. Mouth: Powerful and opulent taste, well structured. Great aromatic persistence and full rettronasal sensations.

This bottle had a very poor cork so it was not surprising that it showed a touch advanced but none-the -less this had a wonderful nose of leather, spice, dark, rich fruit and an earthy, gamey tang. In the mouth this showed good resolution but with particularly fine balance. It started out reticently but really developed over the several hours it was opened gaining a bit more mid-palate richness and depth of sweet, ripe fruit on the back end that lead to a long, layered finish. A real sense of finesse and elegance, much more so that with the last bottle. Certainly drinking well but with a very long life ahead 2008-2025
