Vega Sicilia Valbuena 2010
|Region||Ribera del Duero|
Wine EnthusiastSmoky aromas of black plum, wild berry and clove precede a rich, layered, saturated palate that's creamy in the long run. Woody, spicy flavors of clove, pepper, chocolate and plum finish similarly, meaning this superb blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is still in a youthful phase. Drink from 2018-2030.
Wine SpectatorThick and plush, this rich red delivers black plum, blackberry, toast and baking spice flavors, supported by well-integrated tannins and gentle acidity. A big wine, but not aggressive, with a warm, broad character. Drink now through 2025. 17,000 cases made.
