Vega Sicilia Valbuena Red 2015

The 2015 Valbuena, a red blend of mostly Tempranillo with some 5% Merlot, is released in the fifth year after the harvest. It's explosive and showy, with a complex nose that shows a mixture of flowers and wild herbs, balsamic touches and great nuance. This wine has gained in complexity since the 2010 vintage, where they implemented some changes that increased the expressivity and precision of this wine. The tannins are fine-grained and there is very good balance, and the warm conditions of the year have been absorbed well by the wine. Despite the natural conditions of the year, the wine follows the path of freshness of the 2010. 173,673 bottles, 5,625 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in June 2018.

At Vega Sicilia they have increased the capacity to age wines with more 40,000-liter oak vats. The Único released in 2020 will be the 2010, a vintage that raised high expectations. This year I was pleasantly surprised by the Reserva Especial, which despite the fact that the blend is of recent-ish vintages, it seems to have inherited the character of the wines from yesteryear.
