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 and stacked, the fruit quality is superb, the balance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. This is one of our favorite Spanish reds of the region.
