1968 Vega Sicilia Unico Riserva - 750ml

An awesome wine! Judged only by the unevolved, saturated, dense ruby/purple color, this 27-year old wine could easily be mistaken for a 2-year old claret. The nose offers up copious aromas of sweet, jammy, black plums, black-cherries, and cassis, as well as gorgeous, smoky, vanillin, floral, and licorice scents that tease the olfactory senses with the promise of considerable thrills. Extremely full-bodied, massively rich, and unctuous, with layers of jammy fruit, adequate acidity, and moderate tannin, this huge wine's well-focused, structural component keeps everything in balance. There is a freshness, youthfulness, and extraordinary degree of promise in this amazingly young, fabulously concentrated Unico Reserva. It should take its place in wine history beside the greatest clarets of the decade of the sixties. Look for the 1968 Unico to age effortlessly for another 30+ years. An amazing wine! RP
