Tasting Notes

Spain's most consistently great winery continues to turn out exciting wines. There are four Unico Reservas currently in the market. The 1985 Unico Reserva is already revealing considerable complexity and low acid, plump, round, rich flavors. There is no amber to be found in the wine's deep ruby/purple color. The nose offers tobacco, smoke, tar, and gobs of sweet black cherry fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with a layered, nuanced character, high glycerin (hence the sweetness in the flavors), and a lush, round, generously-endowed finish, this is a substantial as well as elegant, savory style of Unico Reserva that can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.

Score: 93Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (116), April 1998

Tannic, tightly wound with blackberry and cocoa flavours. There is density and power here with tannins that should soften after more time in bottle. Drinking Window 2017 - 2035
