2019 vega sicilia, unico reserva especial, ribera del duero
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As I've seen in recent years the non-vintage blend NV Único Reserva Especial 2019 Release contains younger wines than what the older releases used to me made up of. In this case it's 2006 2007 and 2009 and in fact contains wine from the current release of Único so not much older. It's mostly Tinto Fino (aka Tempranillo) and some Cabernet Sauvignon. It had a slightly longer élevage in oak as the blend was put in bottle in June 2015 at the same time as the 2009 Único; therefore the 2006 and 2007 components were in oak for a longer time. It has a similar character to the 2009 perhaps a little more subtle and elegant but not really more complex with some tannins and a medium-bodied palate. 17071 bottles and 2010 magnums produced.
