Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1967

From a nice old-looking bottle with a fill into the neck. Reddish tawny color. Bright fruit-forward nose. Notes of red fruit, spice, red flowers, mint and some moist forest earth. Great aromatics. Decent fruit remaining with nicely integrated tannins and great, balanced structure. This improved over the evening... quiet at first (despite 4+ hours of decanter time), but showed its stuff later on. — 14 days ago

Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Cosecha 2000 UNICO 2004

B
10

2004 Vega Sicilia Unico. Anniversary date night in SF at Bellota. Let it sit in the glass and decanter for an hour before drinking and it could use a few more hours. After an hour, it opened up a tiny bit. Inky, rich, tannic, but delicious. Dark fruit, asphalt, black pepper, lavender on the front. Balanced, but very young. — 3 years ago

Parador

Reserva Red Blend 2009

Sourcing their fruit from Hossfeld Vineyards which suffered substantial losses in the fire of 2017, this high altitude 2/3 tempranillo 1/3 Cabernet from Parador is very unique and went perfectly with smoked paprika pulled pork sandwiches! This wine poured a dark crimson with purple edges. Nose of smoky blackberry and sweet fruit opulence. Palate is brambly and reminiscent of a young Vega Sicilia which is leathery, smoky, Blackberry and drunken black cherry-rich. Middle has a fair amount of earthy, soil driven tar and ashy loam. Finishes with good acidity which danced well with the pork and stood alone quite well. A baby, but very curious about this wine. Well made and hope to acquire future vintages! — 4 years ago

Pintia Toro Tempranillo 2017

9.0

Luscious dark fruits are the draw here. The ample acidic and tannic structure can barely rein in the richness of the fruits.
Need time to settle, but I did enjoy the sheer power of a young Toro.

Aalto

P.S. (Pagos Seleccionados) Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2017

Modern take on Ribera del Duero from select vineyards. The color is deep purple, indicative of the 60+ year old vine grape selection. An expressive nose with scents of black fruits, tobacco and leather. The mouthfeel is equally expressive with cherry, blackberry, oak, vanilla, and licorice. The tannings are soft for such a young Tempranillo, and it is not slander but quite the contrary, it allows for the elegant finish with finesse and length. Very exiting wine!

PS The mastermind/winemaker behind Aalto made his mark at Vega Sicilia for over 30 years. It is no surprise the wine is excellent; it will be exciting to see how the wine evolves over the next decade and how it will challenge some of the greatest wines produced in the region.

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura

This 6 year old Tondonia Blanco bottled in the early 70s is absolutely stunning. Better than any of the vintages I’ve had. I know traditionally some Spanish producers put a lot of effort into their NV blends (think Vega Sicilia for example) but this was still far better than expected. Glad I’ve got 11 bottles left. It’s complex as hell and has serious acidity but it’s the length that really stands out. It. Never. Ends. — 4 years ago

Bodegas Mauro

Castilla y León Red Blend 2016

Produced by the Mauro winery in Castilla-León, a project of Mariano García, a winemaker known for being technical manager of Vega Sicilia for 30 years. A blend of Tempranillo with 5% Syrah and aged for 16 months in French oak. Ripe Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with spice & smoky notes on full, very tight, tannins. Lingering finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with mineral earthy tones, a joy to Sip!! Tasting great, has much more aging potential. Very Nice! — 3 years ago
