 Vega Sicilia Valbuena '5 ano' 1989

Vega Sicilia is Spain's most renowned producer, traces its roots to 1864. American wine Guru Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) has called Vega Sicilia "One of the world's most iconic wines'.
Vega Sicilia is noted for its patience in winemaking and willingness to hold onto their inventory and age their wines in the barrel. The wine can be held by Vega Sicilia for decades until they release it to the market. Vega Sicilia produces three wines: VEGA SICILIA UNICO gran reserve, VEGA SICILIA UNICO RESERVA ESPECIAL and VALBUENA.

This bottle, a vintage 1989 Vega Sicilia Valbuena '5 ano,' is predominantly Tempranillo with a small amount of Merlot (proportions varying from vintage to vintage) and aged for 5 years between oak (a combination of French and American oak, both new and old) prior to release. Robert parker rated the 1989 vintage an 88/100 for wines of the Ribera del Duero.
