"Saturated ruby. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh ripe red fruits, floral oils, pipe tobacco and incense take on sexy vanilla and woodsmoke nuances as the wine opens up. Densely packed yet shockingly lithe on the palate, offering intense cherry liqueur, red currant and spicecake flavors given spine by a core of juicy acidity. Shows superb energy and clarity, finishing sweet, smoky and extremely long; velvety tannins add gentle grip."

"The new release of 2005 Vega Sicilia Único is an absolutely stunning wine in the making, with great depth, precision and vibrancy that augurs very well for its positive evolution in bottle. The bouquet is very pure and still quite primary, wafting from the glass in a nascently complex constellation of black cherries, black plums, Montecristos, raw cocoa, a complex base of soil tones and a masterful base of smoky, gently spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and utterly seamless, with superb depth at the core, impeccable focus and balance and a very long, ripely tannic and youthful finish. This vintage of Único seems to be cut from the same cloth as the more elegant legendary years like 1970 and 1985, but it is still a very young wine and needs at least another decade in the cellar to start to blossom and drink with conviction. (Drink between 2027-2085) 96+"
