A delicate flower of a wine. Hardly. Brutish but lovely fruits here. Not my style but sometimes you gotta go here.

Winery is owned in collaboration with Chris Ringland, Jorge Ordonez, Miguel Gil and others and located in the Valley of La Aragona inside the Murcia district of Jumilla. Very dark almost purple with floral fruit aromas & gentle spice. On the palate blueberry & sweet black cherry flavors, savory with great velvet mouthfeel. 24 months aging on French & American oak, the 70% Monastrell and 30% Cab Sauvignon has fine tannins with earthy mineral tones on a lingering finish. A Fav! The ‘15 is drinking great now!

Red cherry color. Balsamic, spicy, aged fruit on smell. Long acidity, very well balanced, silky on mouth. A great choice for our 5th wedding anniversary. Keep it safe until a great celebration comes. To pair with red meat. Great!

Awesome oak to flavor balance... Wanted more than a glass.

Noticeable oak treatment, tannin and heat. Not loving it. There’s big, monolithic but approachable reds and there’s cough syrup. This trends towards the later.

From Bodegas El Nido, a collaboration between the Gil family and Chris Ringland, Clio is a 70/30 blend of Mourvèdre (Monastrell, as it's known in Spain) and Cabernet Sauvignon. From vineyards in the Jumilla DO in the region of Murcia, located in southeastern Spain. Roughly 85% of Jumilla's production is Monastrell. This is a steakhouse style wine. Over-the-top, rich blackberry and blueberry that falls somewhere between preserves and glaze, singed cedar, dried underbrush, with a vanilla driven perfume that evokes the first scent you get at a speciality cake shop.

This had new world all over it and it ended up being Spanish. Typical American oak nose, but also some mint. Vanilla extract (but not too much) and blueberries, alongside smoked meats. Awesome value.
