Lot #324. Vega-Sicilia Único Reserva Especial (2018 Release) NV

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 WA.
"A non-vintage blend of three different years and released in 2018, the NV Único Reserva Especial 2018 Release is composed of a blend of 58 barrels from the vintages 2005, 2006 and 2007, younger vintages than the Reserva Especial bottlings from yesteryear. It feels young and not that far away from the current vintage of Único, 2006, which is released at the same time as this. It's mostly Tempranillo with some Cabernet Sauvignon, where the aim is to keep a constant character across the different releases. It has a classical profile, with polished tannins and nice subtlety. Comparing it with the 2006 Único, it doesn't seem to have the same elegance, depth and complexity." Wine Advocate Interim, Jan 2018
Notes: #012505, "Hemos seleccionado para la reserva Especial del año 2018, 58 barricas de las cosechas de 2005, 2006 y 2007 . . .".
