Food Pairings for Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera Del Duero Valbuena 3.° Reserva
Nose is smokey with a light minerals but overall quite closed. Watery in the mouth with cherry and thin earth. Really can't say this is representative. Out of all the wines served at the Salon de los Mejores, we were given a small if non exsistent sample of this wine, and then ignored. Really a disappointment and I hope to try this one day in a proper setting. 2.5/5 [NR]
My ancestors are Spaniards, so when I saw this renowned wine from Ribera del Duoro, I had to purchase it for tasting. I was disappointed. It was nothing to jump up and down about. I wish I would have spent the $100+ price on a $30 more enjoyable Temparnillo or something more enjoyable. The color was Dark Purple, the nose of rose petals, the taste was Floral violets, chalky, slightly acidic, leathery. The finish coated my mouth but on a scale if 10 I would only give this wine a 6. Compare that rating with the high price (which I have paid for other wines) this 1o year old Valbuena was disappointing.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2007 Vega Sicilia Valbuena 750ml
The 2007 Valbuena is rounded and warmer than the 2006 with lush dark berry fruits interlaced with scents of espresso and bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity with a composed, focused finish of black cherries, raspber... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 1940 Vega Sicilia Unico 750ml
The 2005 Valbuena is purple/black in color with an alluring nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, espresso, incense, and blackberry. On the palate it reveals its elegant personality, round texture, savory flavors, and lengthy, pure finish. ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Luxurious Drinks offers you: Wine - red - Bodega Vega-Sicilia Unico Especial - Spain - Region: Rbera del Duero - Apellation: Rbera del Duero - Tempranillo - 750 ml.
Purpur-Granat mit undurchlässiger Mitte. Pflaumenkuchen und Zimtkirschen in der tiefgründigen Nase, auch Lebkuchen, Speckdatteln und reife Waldbeeren, feine Nussschokoladennote schwingt mit. Samtige Textur im aufwärmenden Gaumen, kompakte Tannine und faszinierende Balance zwischen dem marmeladigen Extrakt und viel Potential versprechender Fruchtsäure, hat die Fülle eines Grange und die Finesse eines La Tache, Zwetschgenkompott, Amarenakirschen und Pralinen, sehr komplex bis ins lange Finale. Outstanding, wie ein Blend aus den besten Weinen der Welt. Dekantieren falls jung getrunken.
"Valbuena" is a Tempranillo and Merlot blend that shows the feminine side of the Vega Sicilia. Somewhere between garnet and cherry in color, "Valbuena" gives red berries on the nose with softness and elegance on the palate. The Barbaresco to "Unico's" Barolo!
