Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial Release 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): This 2012 release of Unico Reserva Especiale is a blend of 1991, 1994 and 1999. It has an immediately seductive bouquet of macerated cherries, lavender, marmalade and candied orange peel. It has wonderful definition and purity. The palate is medium-bodied with lush, rounded tannins on the entry. Vibrant dark berries, maraschino, orange peel and a dash of Chinese 5-spice all vie for attention, whilst the finish is elegant, sensual and beautifully defined. This is very alluring and for want of a better word--sexy. Drink 2013-2025+. (Aug 2012)
