Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010 (1500ml)

$274.99$239.99

96 Points, Wine Advocate: "...2010 seems to have the exuberance of the 2011 and the seriousness and elegance of 2009. It has the Burgundian philosophy of terroir, with all plots fermented and aged separately, giving each vineyard what it needs in terms of vinification and elevage resulting in something like 40 separate lots to blend. This wine has gained in precision and sharpness, and is very pure with delineated aromas and flavors. It is a world-class wine, possibly the best Valbuena ever. 180,000 bottles and some bigger-sized formats were filled..."

Still so young but man this is great. Very soft tannins especially given the age.

Shockingly easy to enjoy now, this is quite a different experience than I was expecting. Though somewhat divergent from its typically firmer structure, it was great because we had it with a meal and could enjoy it immediately. The color has a deep purple-red core, with vibrant ruby edges. The nose was youthful with a medium+ intensity , showing dark red and black fruits, mocha and coffee bean. The flavors came in waves on the palate, layering with elegance and consistency to a long, fruit, oak and subtle spice finish. Not what I expected, but very enjoyable and priced much better here in Spain. @ Asador Extebarri #valbuena #vegasicilia #riberadelduero

Beautifully complex nose - dark and rich with a hint of fruit on top. On my palate, a wonderful blend of tannin with the traditional Tempranillo notes and undertones. Lovely now and will continue to expand for years.

2010 drinking a bit young with exuberant berry aromas and long after taste. Complex yet balanced with hints of ripe fruits.
