Lot #525. Bodegas El Nido Clio 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Spain, Murcia, Jumilla.
Score: 94 WA.
"The 2008 Clio is made up of 70% old vine Monastrell sourced from a vineyard planted in 1944 and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted in 1979. The alcoholic fermentation is in oak followed by malolactic fermentation in new barrels and aging for 24 months in new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits 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. In spite of its size, it is surprisingly light on its feet and can be approached now. However, it will evolve . . ." Wine Advocate #195, May 2011
Provenance: The Bruxelles Cellar
Notes: Very lightly bin soiled, nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $50
