Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

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!

Very nice! Much like a California cab but very soft tannins.

Very elegant & subtle wine. The Spanish equivalent of a premium Barbaresco but obviously slightly better @Anthony De Blasi

Was going to hold the 2015 for couple years, but a friend who came over the house for dinner is a huge fan of Clio, so I obliged to open one.
What can I say! To some extend it reminds me of Caymus. Like the style or not, it’s just unbelievably delicious.
