Spain's most consistently great winery continues to turn out exciting wines. There are four Unico Reservas currently in the market. The 1981 Unico Reserva is more restrained than the 1982 or 1985, with a personality similar to a classic Medoc (i.e., Lafite-Rothschild). Lead pencil, tar, smoke, black currant, and weedy tobacco notes are followed by a medium-bodied wine with beautiful fruit, a supple texture, and a long finish. While not as flamboyant or expansive as either the 1982 or 1985, it is a classy, complex offering with an intriguing lead pencil/smoky note in its aromatics, flavor, and finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
