2010 Bodegas El Nido “El Clio” Red Wine

$55 (retail) Wine Club pricing reflected in receipt

We’ve developed an affection for wines from Spain, and one of our favorite producers is Gil Family Estates, which owns Bodegas Ed Nido, home of El Nido and Clio branded wines (kinda confusing, yes?). The winery is located in the Valle de La Aragona, inside the Mucria district of Jumilla (here’s a challenge: find this place on the map. Hint: it’s in the southeast corner of Spain). The vineyards consist of 64 acres of old monastrell vines and 45 acres of cab planted a quarter century ago.

This is a wonderful blend, partly due to the fact that it spent two years in the barrel. The winery makes 15,000 cases total per year, 90% of which is exported.

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Cherry covered. Notes of leather, toasted bread and ripe fruit mixed with a touch of spices. The result is intensity, concentration and complexity—a bit sophisticated, with resources to meditate its extraordinary richness.”

70% cabernet sauvignon, 30% old vine monastrell
