The 2010 Clio is a blend of Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. As is customary here, the grapes fermented in open 4.5-ton stainless-steel vat and aged for 23 months on barriques. It has ripe notes of plums, esparto grass and some tree bark with a shy jamminess. The palate is medium to full-bodied with some tannins to be resolved and a slightly burning sensation that is pungent and powerful and a little sweet toward the finish. This wine somehow feels like it’s evolving fast, and while it’s going to keep, I don’t think it’s going to improve in the bottle, so I wouldn’t keep it that long. 60,000 bottles were produced.

Technical notes
The Wine Advocate The inky purple 2003 El Nido, which comes from 26-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines (70%) and 61-year-old Mourvedre (30%), was aged 26 months in new French and American oak barrels. It exhibits leathery, creme de cassis, and pain grille characteristics, additional tannin and body, and a formidable palate. A wine of extraordinary extract and richness, it will be a target for old timers and reactionaries who will feel it is too internationally styled, but it is an eye-opening wine from an area better known for large cooperatives and mediocre quality. It should evolve for 15 or more years. Score: 97. óRobert Parker, August 28, 2006.
