In the absence of a 2001 Unico, Vega Sicilia has re-released the 2000 Unico which I reviewed in Issue 189. The 2000 Unico is deep crimson-colored with an ethereal perfume aided by its extended upbringing. Aromas of Asian spices, lavender, incense, truffle, and confiture of black fruits are compelling. Sweet, forward, rich, and hedonistic, it nevertheless has the balance and structure to continue evolving for another 5-10 years. In strong vintages Vega Sicilia drinks well at age 50 and I would expect the same of the 2000.

Its luminous, red color reveals its brash youth through a distinct concentration. The initial aromas are of leather and rolling tobacco that with breathing are followed by stimulating notes of spice and ripe fruit. The mouthfeel is bold yet elegant with a dynamic balance difficult to match. The length is epic.
