"The NV 2014 Release Reserva Especial is a blend of different harvests, and therefore sold without a harvest year. This 2014 Release is a blend of 1994, 1995, and 2000, three very good years for Unico. Reserva Especial is the most Burgundian, classical and reminiscent of the old-style Vega Sicilias of yesteryear, a more subtle, baroque wine, aged for a long time in wood. It has a high level of complexity and a touch of volatility, which clearly tells you that this is not a style for everyone. This is not a fruit-driven wine. It is a tertiary wine with a developed, complex bouquet consisting in hints of leather, earth, spices and iodine, and a subtle, elegant style. This was bottled in 2010 and is one of the best modern-day Reserva Especial vintages. By the way now that we're talking about the best Reserva Especial, if you ever have the chance to drink a bottle of the 1990 release - that is the best one I've ever had. 15,500 bottles of this prodigious wine were produced. Make sure you grab at least one ! Drink now-2025."
