Tasting Notes:
tasted: November 11, 2008 , Dexter Holtkamp
96 points "Color: deep; Nose: intense; Aromas: buttery, spicy, red berry, black berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: very persistent; Overall: well balanced; The 1970 is showing stronger and stronger every time I taste it; at the moment I give it an edge over the 1968; ruby colour with purole light red edge; incredible superconcentrated nose with aromas of blueberries, plums, vanilla and licorice; on the palate medium acidity, velvetly ripe tannins and exellent concentration and focus; this has the necessary structure and extract to age effortlessly for 20 + years; for me the 1970 along with the 1968 are the most promising wines Vega Sicilia has released since the 1942; it is also interesting that the 1970 I.M.O. is the wine that anounces the change in style and vinification that is evident in the younger vintages: more focus on freshness, cleanness and elegance and less of the volatile acidity and porty aromas of the past; this is the signature of Mariano Garcia (Vegas´s winemaker). " Best 2000-2025
