Bodegas El Nido Red Blend Jumilla Clio 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes, undurchdringliches Dunkelrot. Im Bouquet viel Würzigkeit, dunkle Frucht und eine klassische Röstaromatik mit Kokosnote vom amerikanischen Holz. Sehr reintönig und intensiv. Voluminöser Wein, mit viel Extraktsüsse und Gaumenfrucht aber auch mit seidig elegantem Tannin und einer kühl wirkenden Gaumenfrucht. Sehr gelungene Verbindung von Tradition und Moderne.

This is a complex, herbaceous wine that needs three to four hours of breathing in the bottle to reach its peak. At uncorking, one senses that the wine will integrate and evolve over time, but it is elegant from the first whiff. The harmonies are uniquely combined. Aromas include coffee, vanilla, tobacco, cherry, and an assortment of herbs and spices. The first taste delivers herbal warmth on the back, accompanied by the purest notes of cherry and oak in the center. Spicy fruit emerges to balance the vibrant array of flavors, and the wine begins to develop a set of opposites that add to the interest. Chewy but not heavy. Voluptuous and hedonistic but also subtle and balanced. Creamy but energetic. Powerful but also refined and complex. Pungent but also sweet. Both sappy and light. All these paradoxes are held in delightful tension. At an hour and a half, new aromas and tastes emerge, including a bit of coffee, and some vanilla. At two hours, the cherry high notes continue on the palate, joined by a fresh assortment of spices. At three hours, pepper and spice, coconut, licorice, leather, brilliant red and dark fruits, smoked meat, plus earthy, floral and herbal medleys are all going on. At 3 ½ hours, the flavors invade every nook and cranny of the palate and intermingle enchantingly while the tannins provide a textured background and cavernous structure for an expanding crescendo of tastes. The finish is long and savory, with plenty of spice and zing, along with a wide acidity and a nasal penetration like a mild wasabi. This wine displays best at 3 ½ to 4 ½ hours.

Surprisingly tannic at this age. Can stay in the bottle for a few more years, but like other reviewers 3 hours or more in the decanter releases some hidden treasures. If you are impatient do not hesitate to decant the wine, then shake it as hard as you can without spilling it out of the decanter. This approach while viewed by some as crude yields a rewarding short-cut to waiting for three hours.

This vintage will keep the ball rolling.Deep purple color accompanied by classic aromas of cassis, licorice, espresso roast, chocolate and toasty oak. Broad, intensely flavored, super opulent and very long on the finish. Approachable now, and at its best for the next 10-15years!

Winemaker's notes:Big, oaky, extracted. After a couple hours in the decanter, it became less a fruit bomb, and began to show increasing minerality.

Big, oaky, extracted. After a couple hours in the decanter, it became less a fruit bomb, and began to show increasing minerality. The wine has aromas of blueberry and chocolate covered cherries.
