This has become our house red; we buy this by the case it's so good. Blueberry jam, cedar, a hint of vanilla and black pepper -- and a little gamey on the nose tonight. This followed some big wines and still held its own. Little sibling to El Nido - this is very new world in style and taste. Just so easy drinking and delicious.

Cherry red, very spicy, vegetables, very long on smell. Extremely persistent, sweet, long, mineral, very well structured, silky on mouth. Do truly love this blend of monastrell and cab sauvignon. 34€ in Spain, veeeery good.

Juicy, huge oak, and a finish so long you almost want it to stop. Some earthy spice and chalkiness finds its away into the overload of new world fruit, but this wine is damn well made and a great marriage of opposing flavors.

2013 is a Big Winner in Spain, this Awesome Clio is right up with the Best Vintages produced. Pure fruits of Blueberries and other black fruits. Great texture and mouthfeel, not to be missed! Opened at Eagles vs Bills game tailgate . CB 94

Although more refined than the Syrah still loads of oak. Much more balanced although softer.

Drank this over several evenings with the Coravin. Loved it. Deep vanilla, robust, smooth. Great wine

Calmed down....some. Still big dark fruit but secondary notes starting to play a larger role. All smiles tonight and enjoyed two bottles of this tonight!

Still massive from the last time I had this a year and a half ago. A bit more eucalyptus and herbal notes than previous bottles to go along with the huge black and blue fruits.
