Description:

Bodegas Vega Sicilia Unico 1998
Ribera del Duero
"The 1998 Unico is purple-colored with a complex bouquet of wood smoke, violets, Asian spices, mineral, blueberry, and assorted black fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, dense, loaded wine with gobs of sweet fruit, great concentration, and layers of flavor. It will continue to evolve for another 5-7 years and drink well through 2040+." J. Miller for TWA, 98 pts. 02/08
2 bottles
Estimate $600-1,000
