The current NV 2015 Único Release Reserva Especial is a blend of 1994, 1996 and 2000, for a total of 54 barrels. The wine was bottled around 2009-2010 and the older wines are kept in oak vats until the blend is done. To me this wine retains the more classical Vega Sicilia style, with a longer aging of the wines before bottling, a more Burgundian, complex and developed wine with more tertiary aromas of truffles, forest floor, paprika, spices and something earthy. The palate is medium to full-bodied, but quite polished, almost fully-resolved tannins, good, lively acidity and great length. This is a complex, profound wine that brought me back to the Vegas of yesteryear. Simply superb. 15,605 bottles and 236 magnums produced.
