Wine tasting note: 1981 Vega Sicilia 'Unico'

1981 Vega Sicilia 'Unico'

20th Jan 2000 GBP100 Spain Table Red

Deep tawny/red with some brick red at rim. Lovely, meaty nose, quite tight after the Armagh but some development with provencal herbs and red berry fruits - multilayered. Full bodied and aggressive with tart blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, a trace of fine tannins, fruity acidity and a long perfectly balanced finish. Very enjoyable now but has at least another decade. Superb.
