El Nido Jumilla 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

70% cabernet sauvignon, 30% monastrell (old vines). Cherry covered. Notes of leather, toasted bread and ripe fruits mixed with a touch of spices. It results are intense, concentrated and complex, a little bit sophisticated and with resources to meditate on and savor its extraordinary richness of extract. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 94 points by International Wine Cellar: (made from a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% monastrall; 15.5% alcohol): Inky purple. Dark berry preserves, cola, smoky oak and sandalwood on the intensely scented nose. Weighty and broad, with unlikely vivacity to its ripe blueberry and cherry compote flavors. Toasty, sweet and velvety in texture, with superb finishing thrust and persistent sweetness. This exotic, velour-like wine gains spiciness and floral character with air, and shows a suave blend of fruit and tannins; it should be even better with a few years of bottle age. (Sep 2012)

Glass-staining purple. Explosive, alluring scents of blueberry, boysenberry, pipe tobacco, licorice and vanilla bean. Lush and broad but juicy and firmly built, with suave candied dark fruit flavors accented by sexy floral and Asian spice qualities. Finishes broad, juicy and impressively long, with echoing boysenberry and spice notes.
