Blend of the 90, 91, and 94 vintages. Excellent. Tied for second with the 98 vintage in the flight of older Tempranillo

Current 2014 release: vintages 1994, 95, 00. This wine bloody rocks. So very young. Hard minerals, black fruits, firm tannins. Cellar for 40+ yrs if you dare.

Was very excited the rare multi-vintage riserva especial from Vega Sicilia. Not blown away - the oak is a hair less integrated than I’d prefer. The dark fruit is quite excellent though. Medium finish. Worth trying another with a longer decant.
