THE REVIEW

Few wines ignite as much excitement as a Clio or El Nido release. 
This is the 2016 El Nido, Clio's big brother and the flagship bottling from Bodegas El Nido.
While Clio is a blend of mostly Mourvedre and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon, El Nido is the reverse: mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Mourvedre. Only the best fruit from the vineyards goes into El Nido.
If El Nido were from Napa Valley, it would easily sell for $250 per bottle. This is some of the best value Cabernet Sauvignon you will enjoy from any wine region and price.
The predominant Cabernet gives the wine a bit more structure than Clio and the Mourvedre gives this wine Clio’s hallmark silky finish. It is big and rich and, "for those who like this profile, this could very well be the finest vintage of El Nido to date." The Wine Advocate
If you’ve hesitated to pull the trigger on El Nido in the past because of its $125 price, take advantage of this one-day special!
