Heiner Lobenberg über:
Unico 2009

97–98
/100

Lobenberg: Dunkle Beeren, etwas Pfefferwürze, auch Tabak und Teer. Dieser Dreiklang aus Würzigkeit, reifer Frucht und erdigen Noten zieht sich auch am Gaumen fort. Ein unglaublich anspruchsvoller und doch süffiger Rotwein von einem der besten Häuser. Das ist DER Wein der Ribera del Duero und noch vor Riojas Tondonia DER Vorzeigewein Spaniens. Non plus ultra! 97-98/100

Falstaff über: Unico

-- Falstaff: Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezenter Ockerrand. Zart tabakig unterlegte dunkle Waldbeeren, aber auch rote Frucht, angenehme Edelholznoten, Tabak und Veloursleder, zart nach Nougat, braucht einige Luft. Saftig und extraktsüß, Nuancen von Kirschen, seidige Tannine, mineralisch-salzig im Abgang, sehr harmonisch, majestätischer Stil mit großem Potenzial. 99/100

Parker über: Unico

-- Parker: I tasted a bottle of the 2009 Único blind and was taken by the freshness, the red fruit notes and the Burgundian-like characteristics of this vintage, which on paper was quite warm and dry. I also tasted the 2009 Valbuena, which is always more approachable, and was blown away by its aromatics. With time in the glass the Único opened up and got closer to the character of Valbuena but with more depth and clout, while showing extremely elegant. I tasted it again in the context of all the wines from the group, and it delivered all that I saw when I tasted it blind. It takes some time to unfurl its aromatic palette, and it feels young and somewhat undeveloped, younger than it is. It has a touch that made me think of the old vintages of Único on the nose but with very polished tannins and a soft mouthfeel that provides elegance. This is a wine that ages for no less than ten years before it's released. 2009 seems like a great vintage for Vega Sicilia, much better than what I anticipated. It should develop nicely in bottle. 74,274 bottles, 3,390 magnums, 209 double magnums and 22 imperials were produced. It has been in bottle since June 2015. 98/100

Suckling über: Unico

-- Suckling: The elevage is complex, building from smaller barrels to larger barrels over a period of six years, finishing in larger vats. Then four years in bottle. Non-sequential releasing with the 2005 and 2006 being released after the 2007 and 2008. This 2009 has good ripeness and deep fruit-presence on the nose with rich red and dark plums, subtly earthy spice, cedar and fresh tobacco. There’s terrific concentration on the palate and very ripe dark-plum, blueberry and cherry flavors. The tannins are fresh, very long and carry flavors deep. Natural freshness and effortless power, too — a hallmark of Unico! Very open-knit and approachable now, this will age for two decades easily, and then some more. 98/100

Winespectator über: Unico

-- Winespectator: This red is rich yet vibrant, dense yet graceful. Cherry and plum flavors are backed by forest floor, cedar, tobacco and mineral notes, supported by muscular, well-integrated tannins that give way to a spicy, slightly bitter flnish. Complex and harmonious. Tinto Fino and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2029. From Spain. 95/100
