Sipping Fine Wine

Launched with the 1991 vintage by famous Vega Sicilia estate. The last vintage I tried was the ‘13 & ‘08 before that. 100% Tempranillo, about 14 months in new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, spice, floral and earthy oak. Palate shows big ripe blackberry & plum flavors with hints of tobacco & licorice wrapped with oak. Tannins, a bit biting, support the backbone of the wine, needs more bottle age. Well balance with acidity, full body, lingering finish ends with some fruit, oak, spice, and earthy character. Nice!
