Bodegas El Nido, Clio
'Nothing Short Of Spectacular' -- Robert Parker
August 02, 2017
5 HOUR FLASH SALE

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.

Summary

Clio is a blend of 70% Mourvedre (60-year old vines) and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon (25-year old vines). This wine exhibits a dense purple color along with a rich toasty vanillin, blueberries, blackberries, roasted espresso, chocolate, and earth. Full-bodied, with sweet tannin, fabulous concentration, a multilayered mouthfeel and a long finish.
