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).

98 points "The 1989 Unico is dark ruby-colored with a complex nose exhibiting the effects of extended aging. Plush and spicy on the palate, it has ample layered fruit and a very long finish. 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."
