2009 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio
|Vineyard:||Bodegas El Nido|
Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruit (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, savory and opulence combine in the palate of this wine that little by little develops in the bottle.

Wine & SpiritsRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 06/09. Oak scents of vanilla and coconut lead into generous fruit flavors in the middle of this wine. Candied cherry and fig notes fill the enormous structure. Untamed, this wine needs at least another three years to meld.
