The 1998 Unico is purple-colored with a complex bouquet of wood smoke, violets, Asian spices, mineral, blueberry, and assorted black fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, dense, loaded wine with gobs of sweet fruit, great concentration, and layers of flavor. It will continue to evolve for another 5-7 years and drink well through 2040+. (JM)
Youthful nose with primary fruit and sweet oak, the palate reveals the wine’s incredible intensity and depth. Great potential to age beautifully. Drinking Window 2026 - 2048 (JCL)
Ruby-red. Exotic aromas of red and dark fruits, iron, dried flowers, cured meat and tobacco are strongly reminiscent of a top vintage of Chateau Haut-Brion. Luscious cherry and cassis flavors display a superb balance of depth and structure, offering noteworthy power but a weightless quality that is simply uncanny. Candied flowers, smoky minerals and vanilla bean add complexity and extend through an endless finish. I'd love to sneak this into a tasting of 1998 Saint-Emilion and Graves wines in ten years or so.

Lovely tobacco, dried fruit, spice and leather create that unique, classy nose that is Vega Sicilia Unico...The palate is maturing but shows vitality, and the flavors of cherry, tobacco, cracked spice and roasted plums are sublime and backed up by lots of spicy oak. Entirely drinkable now but with the inherent structure to last another decade or two. (MS)
