Bodegas El Nido

Clio Jumilla Monastrell-Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

The 2016 Bodegas El Nido ‘Clio’ is another impressive release from this storied Jumilla estate. The bouquet evokes intense dark fruits aromas with roasted dates, chocolate covered espresso bean and hints of tar. There is a wonderful freshness to this highly viscous wine, as layered dark fruits with silky tannins line the palate. Not for the weary, this decadent new ‘Clio’ is marvelous in its youth but will continue to evolve well for a decade or more. Drink 2019-2031- 93 — 18 hours ago

Bodegas Juan Gil

18 meses Jumilla Monastrell Blend 2016

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Pronounce nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, cola, earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices, mocha, vegetables, leather and peppercorn.

Long spicy finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

A beautiful Monastrell blend from the house of Juan Gil. Showing nice complexity and balance with a great mouthfeel. Big bold and grippy.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

I love anything Gil makes, and this is a delicious example.

Still young and could use a few more years in the bottle to mature, but already drinking very nicely.

I paired it with Brie cheese, almonds and crackers.

A blend of 60% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. Aged separately for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.

16.5% alcohol by volume (watch out)

92 points.

El Nido Jumilla Cabernet Sauvignon Monastrell 2015

This is great, wonderful Spanish blend which would be hard to distinguish in a high end Napa Cabernet line up. Not much to say except this is young but really enjoyable, great nose and depth of flavours on the palate. Highly recommended, give this a try. — 13 days ago

Honoro Vera Irreverent Syrah Blend 2017

Lovely red-maroon color. Smells wine-y with a hint of cedar and wood in there. Flavor is juicy and fruit-filled. Some plums, some berries and a nice licorice thing. Inky too. Ends with a great bitter bite. A prefect everyday red de España. — 6 hours ago
