One of the mysteries of Vega is how a wine released so late can be so fresh and vibrant. The '87 is no exception, featuring red raspberries and cherries counterbalanced by cedary oak. Focused, lean and dry, this vintage of Unico may turn out to be too elegant for its own good, but the delicately fruity, intricately wrought finish seems to go on and on. Joe Czerwinski

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
