95% Tempranillo, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Intensives, dunkles Rot. Nase von schwarzen Früchten, Fruchtsüsse und Nüssen. Am Gaumen, beerig, Honig, Kirschenaroma, Mocca und sehr langanhaltender Abgang. Ein wunderschönes Erlebnis. Ein Wein, der keinen Vergleich mit 1er Crus zu scheuen braucht.
Jetzt schön zu geniessender Wein, als grosser Weingenuss bei häuslicher Gemütlichkeit mit Freunden, als feiner Essensbegleiter für spezielle Anlässe.
Passt hervorragend zu allen Fleischgerichten, wie Braten, Wild, Geflügel und Filets, wie auch zu Käse.

I tasted a bottle of the 2009 Único blind and was taken by the freshness, the red fruit notes and the Burgundian-like characteristics of this vintage, which on paper was quite warm and dry. I also tasted the 2009 Valbuena, which is always more approachable, and was blown away by its aromatics. With time in the glass the Único opened up and got closer to the character of Valbuena but with more depth and clout, while showing extremely elegant. I tasted it again in the context of all the wines from the group, and it delivered all that I saw when I tasted it blind. It takes some time to unfurl its aromatic palette, and it feels young and somewhat undeveloped, younger than it is. It has a touch that made me think of the old vintages of Único on the nose but with very polished tannins and a soft mouthfeel that provides elegance. This is a wine that ages for no less than ten years before it's released. 2009 seems like a great vintage for Vega Sicilia, much better than what I anticipated. It should develop nicely in bottle.
