Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5 Ribera del Duero 1987

Winemaker's Notes:

This is the "official" Vega Sicilia, only made in top years and released anywhere from 10 to 20 years after the vintage. It is this "racking" (transfering the wine from one barrel to another) that gives "Unico" its peculiar Spanish quality. A grape other than Tempranillo could not resist oxidation as well. After roughly 10 years of ageing in wood, the wine was bottled and cellared until its release.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Medium ruby. Sappy raspberry, game and spices on the nose. A wine of great verve and sweetness; lush and chewy but also urgent and sharply delineated. Bracing acids give this dense wine buns of steel. Wonderful expanding finish features strong but th... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 1987 Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva 750ml
