Ribera Del Duero, Castilla Y León

Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

I know I committed infanticide but I wanted to share a special bottle with a favorite cousin who never has an opportunity to drink a wine like this . A powerful , and complex nose of blueberries, florals, and red fruit. On the palate the wine was constantly changing and continuously putting weight on. Deep and concentrated flavors of  plums, chocolate , tobacco and licorice that suppressed the wine’s tannic structure.  — 9 days ago

Fantastic. Love this wine! I quit worrying about drinking a bottle too soon. The occasion is more important and you probably picked up nuances and character in the wine you wouldn’t later.

Torremilanos Ojo Gallo Tempranillo 2020

“Ojo Gallo’, Castellano for ‘rooster eye’ (in other words, what the French call ‘oeil de perdrix’), hearkens back to the traditional clarete style of the region. This dark rosé (light red?) is a field blend of very old vines of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, Viura, Albillo and Malvasia co-fermented in cement and raised for 8 months in used barrels before bottling without added sulfur” — 24 days ago

Muestra Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2006

Shy at first but becomes rapidly approachable with air (30 mins). Voluptuous, silky, jammy and just a bit decadent. Very complimentary of hearty pasta and grilled veal. — 13 days ago
