Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2008

Such a badass. Very few wines combining power, elegance, and finesse like vega. Totally delicious. #vegasicilia #valbuena #elegance #masculine #mouthwatering — 4 years ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2004

A classic Bordeaux styled wine meets a Spanish legendary producer. Pretty consistent with my experiences of this wine, plenty of delicious and layered fruit, perfectly integrated tannin, and ample acidity. All you need is some lamb or steak and you have a culinary match made in heaven. #valbuena #vegasicilia — 5 years ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1998

The last vintage made by the great Mariano Garcia. Still in excellent shape this will go another 10-15 years easy. Complex and evolves over the palate with finesse and precision. #vegasicilia #valbuena #tempranillo #riberadelduero #tintofino — 4 years ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

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 — 5 years ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2009

95% Tinto Fino (#tempranillo) 3% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Merlot and in the past sometimes 1% Malbec when it was worth adding (currently does not exist as it was recently uprooted). Typically 180k bottles of production.
Red garnet core with an edge of ruby.
Elegant red fruits, earth, mushroom and a beam of clean and well integrated oak.
Palate is juicy, fresh with excellent acidity and ripe and fine, but firm medium-full grain tannins.

Plum black cherry caramel cookie dough on the palate dry dry cherries and leather. One lives for this wine. Definitely can age. #vegasicilia #valbuena — 5 years ago
