2007 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla

SKU #1050873 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A similar blend that’s also made in the same style as the ’06, the 2007 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio is a full scaled, decadent and hedonistic wine with decidedly polished blackberry and cassis fruit that’s mixed with smoke, vanilla and graphite. Make no mistake about it; this wine is all about sweet, pure fruit. The palate is full bodied and while lavishly textured and rich, is balanced, fresh and remains relatively light in mouth. Given the upfront appeal, I can’t think of a reason to wait to drink these. This bottle needed a couple hours to unwind so a decant is recommended. Inner quote mark (2/2010)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Clio is made up of 67% old vine Monastrell sourced from a vineyard planted in 1944 and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted in 1979. The alcoholic fermentation is in oak followed by ML in new barrels and aging for 26 months in new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an in-your-face bouquet of wood smoke, underbrush, incense, blueberry, and black currant. Dense, chewy, packed and stacked, the fruit quality is superb, the balance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It will be controversial with those who prefer low alcohol and finesse in their wines. Those who like unrestrained power and richness will adore it quite aside from the fact that it over-delivers for its relatively modest price. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

Outer quote mark A pungent, smoky bouquet displays rich dark berry preserves along with notes of licorice, violet, cured meat and black pepper. Brighter red fruits on the palate, which is surprisingly energetic for such richness. Tangy cracked pepper and mace notes build with air and carry into the finish. Leaves sweet red and dark berry notes behind on the very long, sappy and sweet finish. This energetic wine is already delicious. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lithe and balanced, this fresh, modern red brims with black cherry, licorice, smoke and black pepper flavors. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, the acidity is lively and the wine sings through the vibrant finish. (TM) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Black fruits, brightness and a friendly sweetness are the aromatic greeting. The palate is intense and thick, with creamy, medicinal berry and molten plum flavors. A little aggressive and minty, but likable and ready to roll. 70% Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. (MS) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
