Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2004

$369

Pablo Alvarez described 2004 as a textbook vintage with perfect temperatures and rain just when it was needed. The 2004 has a haunting bouquet of dark brambly black fruit, cassis, honey, a tang of marmalade and bacon fat. It already boasts an intense, burly bouquet that will require years to soften. The palate is full-bodied with succulent, ripe, intense black cherries, white pepper, minerals and liquorice and it fans out beautifully towards the finish with tar-tinged black fruit interlaced with black pepper. This is a multi-dimensional Unico, more masculine and grander than the 2005, perhaps the sibling of the 1994? eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Featured an earthy/dusty frame with red and blue fruit. Nice balanced finish. Some cedar/spice hints and a touch of citrus.

A lovely open nose with soft cherry and damson. Some vanilla. Beautifully balanced on the palate with great definition and slightly soured long finish. Settled and approachable.

Cranberry, plum, fig, red peppercorn, vanilla, baking spice, and a bit of Earth. M+ tannin, body, finish and complexity. Clove and minerality on the finish. Beautifully balanced and lots of layers of complexity.
