The 2009 Vega Sicilia Valbuena is a blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon released after 5 years of aging. This Spanish red offers complex aromas of ripe red fruit, spice, toast and smoke with good structure and a long finish.
This Valbuena has the garnet cherry red colour of its older brother, the Vega Sicilia Unico, with orangey undertones, the ethereal expression of its alcohol content and the accent of an excellent oxidative evolution, which is a characteristic of the company’s red wines. Its personality is reminiscent of the varieties used, with a hint of ripe red fruit. In the mouth, it has less structure than the Vega Sicilia Único, but holds the complexity of the wine-fruit association.
