2009, Valbuena N°5, Bodegas Vega Sicilia, Ribera del Duero, 3x75cl *
Tempranillo 95%, Merlot 5%
Ribera del Duero
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Goes well with roasted game, suckling pig or roasted lamb.
Opaque ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry pit and potpourri, with a toasty topnote. Minerally, incisive and sweet on the palate, offering smoky cherry and blackcurrant flavors complicated by vanilla, mocha and licorice. Shows impressive power and vivacity on the youthfully tannic finish, with the smoke and spice notes strongly repeating.
