Size750MLVintage2002SKU6399The Valbuena offering is a brilliant introduction to the winery. The 2002, from a supposedly average vintage, is purple in color with an expressive nose of pain grille, earth, herbs, lead pencil, and blackberries. It offers layers of ripe fruit, excellent depth and concentration, and enough stuffing to drink well for the next 10+ years.
Size750MLVintage2003SKU7931The 2003 Valbuena is purple-colored and super-fragrant with aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a powerful, concentrated wine with an opulent palate-feel, layers of flavor, and beautiful integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, no mean feat in the torrid 2003 vintage. 94 pts Wine Advocate (2003)
Size750MLVintage1996SKU5102Still firm and fresh, this solid red shows cherry, licorice, chocolate and light herbal flavors that linger and bloom on the finish. Balanced, with an appealing spicy note that brings you back for another sip.
Size750MLVintage1998SKU7930The 1998 Unico is purple-colored with a complex bouquet of wood smoke, violets, Asian spices, mineral, blueberry, and assorted black fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, dense, loaded wine with gobs of sweet fruit, great concentration, and layers of flavor. It will continue to evolve for another 5-7 years and drink well through 2040+. 98 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
