This wine is earthy, heavyset and reflective of a hot vintage. On the palate, this is ripe and chewy, with almost syrupy weight. Showing notes of robust dark chocolate, with a mix of oak, fruit and tobacco flavors, this inaugural wine from Benjamin de Rothschild and Vega Sicilia is ripe and broad, but also full of complexities. Drink through 2024.
