Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 5 2014 750ml
Robert Parker – 96 Points (2014)

The ripeness is impressive in Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5. A lot of work was done in the vineyard in 2014 to get yields right. Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 delivers darker fruit aromas and flavors, black cherries and plums, dark chocolate and licorice. The palate is deeply fleshy with rich blueberries, cassis and dark roasting herbs. Very deep-set, powerful black fruit with a deeper tannin texture. The power and freshness here is extraordinary. Deeply layered. Superb.
