Bodegas El Nido Red Blend Jumilla Clio 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

70% monastrell (old vines), 30% cabernet sauvignon. Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruits (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, flesh, savory and opulence combine in the palate of this wine that little by little develops in the bottle. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 95+ points by Rhone Report: Possibly my favorite vintage of this to date, the brilliant 2009 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio, mostly old vine Monastrell that's aged in new French oak, boasts awesome aromatics of smoky blackberry and creme de cassis that's intermixed with notions of roasted coffee, chocolate, mineral, and sweet spice on the nose. Full-bodied, impeccably balanced, and awesomely fresh and focused, this blockbuster has layers of sweet fruit and texture, ripe tannin, and a detailed, clean finish. While no doubt a seriously fruited wine that carries a shine of classy oak, it has real depth, character, and structure. It's beautiful now with a decant, but should be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink well for a decade or longer. I'm a huge fan and this is all around impressive!

Dark opaque purple from core to rim. Big and concentrated but still soft, with pure aromas of red cherry and raspberry, Eastern spice, vanilla, and crème de cassis, coupled with a touch of mocha and a lilting sweetness that is quite attractive. Excep... Cory Gowan. A Proprietary Blend wine from Jumilla in Spain. 2010 Nido, Bodegas El Clio 750ml

Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruits (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice, which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, flesh and opulence combine and develop little by little in the bottle.

Sharply focused raspberry, cassis and floral aromas are complicated by zesty minerals and a suave cocoa quality. Sweet red berry and cherry flavors are strikingly pure and deep, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and firmness. The mineral character repeats on the impressively long, juicy finish.

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.

The Gil Family has become world renowned for the incredible wines they produce at their El Nido Estate in Jumilla. "Plush and polished, this big red delivers cassis, licorice, espresso and sanguine flavors, with firm, well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity. A savory style, showing balance and power. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020."
