THE REVIEW

You are reading this correctly. Except for cold fusion, rocket propulsion and putting the man on the moon, this Clio + Pappy combination may very well be the next great human achievement.
    The Clio + Pappy = Precious formula translates as follows: The Clio folks are making Precious on their Jumilla, Spain property using old-vine Syrah grapes. And what are they using to age these luscious grapes? You guessed it, Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon barrels! And who is the winemaker behind this incredibly limited, delicious Spanish red? Right again, Chris Ringland of both Clio and Alto Moncayo.
    Rich and full-bodied, the Syrah aromas are intoxicating with blueberry, blackberry, cherry and spice. The rare use of the Pappy Bourbon casks infuse smoke, roasted vanilla bean, coffee, tobacco and savory tannins. So smooth and silky, the bourbon cask adds an amazing accent; it is not overwhelming but instead works in symphony with the berries and spice of the Syrah. Well done!
    Start the grill and simply pour; your taste buds will experience the equivalence of landing on the moon! Read More »
