2007 Bodegas El Nido "El Nido" Jumilla

SKU #1053681 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Its stable-mate, the 2007 El Nido, is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Monastrell from the same vineyard sites and it received the same elevage. It, too, has a splendid, nearly ethereal perfume, a full-bodied, voluptuous personality, and unrestrained power. It is a bit more structured than the Clio bottling and will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2025, perhaps longer although these wines have no track record of longevity. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Monastrell, the 2007 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla El Nido, aged for 26 months in new French and American oak, sports a lush, decadent bouquet of crème de cassis and ganache covered blackberries, vanilla, smoke, and coffee bean. Fresh and pure, with fantastic complexity and a polish profile on the nose, the wine is full bodied on the palate with a creamy, yet focused and light texture, superb balance, and a long finish. This seems to lack the depth and structure of the ’06, but is gorgeous nonetheless. I have no idea how this will age, but given the balance, I can’t image it not evolving well for a decade or more.

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. High-pitched, complex aromas of raspberry, blackberry, minerals, smoked meat and spices, plus a hint of gingerbread. Rich, round and very sweet; packed with black and blue fruit preserve, Asian spice, candied violet and mineral flavors. Velvety tannins add support to the expansive, palate-saturating fruit flavors. The floral and spice notes come on strong on the finish, which is strikingly fresh and very long. Offers a great combination of depth and vivacity. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2009)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Black currant, espresso, anise and mineral flavors are dark and expressive in this powerful red. Structured, balanced and focused, in the modern style, with a fresh, long finish. (TM) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Cabernet-Monastrell blend tips the scales at 15.5% and asks you straight out: how big do you like your red wines? It is smoky, sultry and massive, with spicy boysenberry aromas, a deep, syrupy palate and plodding flavors of molasses, roasted berry, cedar plank and herbs. Bullish but drinkble now and over the next few years; probably not one for the cellar. (MS) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
