2005 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla

SKU #1036589 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2005 Clio, composed of 70% old-vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, is opaque purple-colored with an enthralling bouquet of pain grille, spice box, violets, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered, opulent, and full-flavored, this thick wine has superb concentration and balance. It will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025. The winemaking at the El Nido project is overseen by renowned Australian vigneron Chris Ringland. After a meticulous selection process, the grapes are basket pressed and fermented in oak. Malolactic fermentation occurs in new French and American oak where the wine remains for 26 months. (JM)  (2/2008)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky purple. Vibrant red and dark berries on the nose, with sexy vanillin oak, Asian spices, fresh flowers and bright minerality. A silky, graceful midweight, displaying vivid raspberry and blackberry flavors and slow-building tannic grip. More tangy than the 2004, and at least as elegant, finishing with outstanding clarity and persistence. (JR) 93+  (9/2007)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Oak dominates this red, but it's delicious oak, with cola, toasty vanilla and smoke flavors. There's also plenty of fruit, tart cherry and raspberry, with ripe tannins and lip-smacking acidity. A modern style. Expressive and lively. (TM)  (11/2007)
