Unico Reserva Especial is a blend of the 1991 1994 and 1995 vintages. Purple-colored it proffers a brooding complex sexy perfume of cigar box leather mineral truffles Asian spices and blackberry jam. Rich savory and plush it effortlessly combines power and elegance. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 20-25 years. </br>Bodegas Vega Sicilia remains a benchmark for the world's great red wines. The Valbuena bottling receives 3 years in barrel and 2 years in bottle prior to release. On the occasion of my visit in May 2010 the three Reserva Especials already in bottle and awaiting release were tasted side by side. They are identified (for the purposes of this review only) as the 2013 Release the 2012 Release and the 2011 Release. I was not told what vintages are in each bottling but it actually makes little difference. The Reserva Especials are blended to a house style designed to reflect Vega Sicilia at its very best. The vagaries of vintage (as reflected in Unico) are blended away leaving a wine that is in my opinion better than any of the single vintage wines with the possible exception of the 1942.-Jay Miller
