It might be that in the books 2010 was a more favorable vintage than 2011, but I see the opposite in the wines of El Nido. The 2011 vintage of the 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Clio is ultra dark, almost black, with a very smoky nose, plenty of spices, graphite with some lactic hints, plums, blackberries, chocolate — all black. The palate is still dominated by the oak, very ripe fruit with unusual flavors of café au lait, plenty of drying, powerful tannins and a clearly sweet finish (toffee) that tries to compensate the high alcohol and moves stylistically closer to a Port. It's a particular style, very good. - Luis Gutierrez

Monastrell (with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) has rarely smelled this perfumed, rich and inviting. This is an ultraripe Levante bruiser, with a jammy yet defined structure and huge flavors of baked blackberry, exotic spice... Monastrell (with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) has rarely smelled this perfumed, rich and inviting. This is an ultraripe Levante bruiser, with a jammy yet defined structure and huge flavors of baked blackberry, exotic spice, dusty mineral and toasty oak. Herbs, espresso and toast flavors propel this rich red to a lush finish. Drink through 2017.
