Every country has a wine producer or two that stands out above the rest. In France, First Growths are king. In Italy, few wines can rival the beauty of a Gaja. In Spain, you have Vega Sicilia.

This is the newly released, and much anticipated, 2006 Vega Sicilia "Unico" from Ribera del Duero. With vineyards dating back to the 1800's, Unico (meaning unique), is made in only exceptional vintages that can live up to the Unico standard.

Vega Sicilia typically holds its Unico bottling for years before release - 10 years on average. At 700 feet above sea level and with prehistoric sediments, the Tempranillo grapes grown at Vega Sicilia are like no other. Influence on these coveted grapes can be attributed to "the dramatic climate of Ribera del Duero, where late May frosts yield to intense heat during the short and sweet growing period." Wine Spectator

The 2006 Unico is the #1 Spanish Wine of 2017 and received a perfect 100 points from James Suckling. The wine boasts "dark berry, spice, cedar and mint. Chinese plums. Asian spices. Bark. Tea. Full body, dense and so soft and complex. The finish goes on for minutes. Endless and fine. January 2017 release. This reminds me of the gorgeous 1991 or 1964. Drink forever. A wine that you want to spend time with." James Suckling
