Press and Tasting Notes

A powerhouse of a Spanish red, Clio from the El Nido winery, is silky smooth and gets huge press year after year. Clio is a blend of 67% old vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. A glass-coating opaque purple color, Clio displays an in-your-face bouquet of wood smoke, underbrush, incense, blueberry, and black currant. Dense, chewy, packed ... Read More »

THE REVIEW

This is a five hour flash sale. Don't sit on this email long! Sorry, but so little Clio is available, we expect this wine to sell out rather quickly.
    Clio, by El Nido, is one of those wines that caught on by wildfire several years ago with its 97 point Parker rating. Prior to that, only a small group of aficionados hoarded it for themselves - including me. After that press, it has been impossible to keep in stock, along with its big brother, El Nido.
    So what makes Clio so special and time-tested? What gives it and its Big Brother multiple and consistent mid-to-high 90 point accolades? The warm, consistent micro-climate of Jumilla, Spain forces the old vine Monastrell (also known as Mourvedre) and Cabernet vines to reach deep into the soil. It is a wine that is uniquely smooth yet structured. "Silky" is the word we hear most often when people ask for it.
    Rich layers of dark fruit offer roasted coffee and earth notes. It is a full bodied wine -- but not overpowering -- with great concentration and an extremely long finish.
     Barbecue season is in full swing and we can't think of a better wine to enjoy with your grilling favorites. Enjoy now, save a few for up to 7 years.Read More »
