Few wines ignite as much excitement as a Clio or El Nido release.
Today's feature is the 2017 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.
The predominant Cabernet gives the wine a bit more structure than Clio and the Mourvedre maintains Clio’s hallmark silky finish. With dark blackberry, wild blueberry, cassis, spice and a hint of smoky wood, the wine has exotic aromatics. Wonderfully textured, El Nido is big and rich, yet still maintains its seamless balance.
If you’ve hesitated to pull the trigger on El Nido in the past, take advantage of this one-day special!
Perfect for barbecue season, the rich flavors and balanced structure will pair nicely with nearly anything you can create on the grill.
