Clio by El Nido, Spain

A Treat For The New Year!
Extremely Limited Quantities!

Don't wait! A new limited release!

Sorry, we only have a little of the newly released 2016 Clio. Like all releases, we expect this Spanish sizzler 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 us. After that press, it has been impossible to keep in stock. The same goes for Clio's big brother, El Nido.

So, what makes Clio so special and time-tested? What gives it and El Nido 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 describe their Clio experience.

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.

Enjoy now and save a few for up to 5 years - if you have the willpower.

$44.95 per bottle / $539.40 per case

Summary


You can never have too much Clio. Always a crowd pleaser, Clio by Bodegas El Nido is silky smooth and gets huge press year after year. The 2015 Clio is a blend of 70% old vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. A glass-coating opaque purple, Clio has an expressive nose of pain grille, underbrush, brier, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry fruit leading to a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. This is an EWM favorite.
