Vega Sicilia-Unico-Tempranillo-2007-750mL

Producer: Vega Sicilia
SKU: 6950
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1 day

Unico comes from the oldest vines of the property. In addition to Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon provides more of composition merlot. Although it is old, red maintains its resiliency provided by good acidity balanced with a resounding alcohol. It has an intense ripe cherry color, with the sharp edge of a correct wine. Prevalent in the aromas are the notes of toasty wood, a result of its evolution during his years in cask. Amplitude has aged but clean flavors of wood, dry and pleasantly bitter tannins from oak, with his touch of light sweetness of the wine's spirit.

Simon Field MW: A more feminine Unico than some, perhaps, but also more precise and poised and , to my palate at least, purer and more approachable in relative youth than some of its forebears. Ageing potential has not been entirely forsaken, however, as the sturdy tannins at the back and lingering savoury notes both serve to emphasise. A Unico for all seasons in other words, underlining once again the significance of the work done in the vineyards under the Alvarez regime and the unrivalled gifts of Javier Ausás as a winemaker.

95/100
The Wine Advocate

They have kept 2005 and 2006 for now, and they are releasing the 2007 Único from a lighter vintage that is accessible already; they will even sell 2008 before 2005 and 2006. 2007 was a cold vintage in Ribera and it produced lighter, fresher wines (perhaps not as problematic as 2008, but there was also frost in 2007). The wine might be a tad lighter than other vintages, but it's more structured than 2008; it combines elegance and power, is nicely balanced and should be able to develop in bottle for many years, although the quick evolution of the bottle once opened made me hesitate about its drinking window. Let's hope I'm wrong. 80,000 bottles produced.
