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

Spanish genes but styled in California, she is a lush but comes across shy. Love her and she was reasonable. Opened the door for herself. Yes cheery on the finish!

Light apricot start but complex middle with black cherries, coffee, chocolate, and citrus. Very complex and delicious.
