"The 1998 Valbuena is better than the 1987 Unico, and probably as good as the 1989 Unico, at least over the next decade. Extremely full-bodied, it offers up notes of smoke, graphite, toasty oak, caramel, black cherry liqueur, and cassis. Opulent and sumptuous, it is both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on."
(Robert M. Parker, Jr.,

92+/100 vinous

"Saturated ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of red berries, raspberry skin, minerals, truffle, coffee, cedar and game. Dense and thick but with terrific acidity and thrust; sharply delineated and gripping. Tangy flavors of red berries, minerals and smoked meat; as elegant as a great mature Bordeaux. Remarkably dense for the vintage but not at all heavy. I instantly identified the producer of this wine in a blind flight but thought it could be the Unico."
(Stephen Tanzer,

"Valbuena, is the purest expression of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino is clearly the predominant wine in the assemblage of the varieties that make up this magnificent wine. The other variety used is Merlot, which is added to a greater or lesser extent depending on the vintage.
The Valbuena Tempranillo is obtained from plots located on gentle concave slopes that descend from the wasteland. Those soils are made up of material that was eroded and accumulated as colluvial on the lower slopes, developing a high profile soil, with a specific important evolution with the formation of a deep calcic horizon.
Valbuena provides us with a direct and understandable view of the greatness of this "terroir" with the direct influence of each vintage. Its production remains unchanged meaning that it is each year\'s weather factors that mark the differences between the different harvests."
