Tasting Note: 70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 24 months in French and American oak. This wine exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple color. It has an expressive nose of pain grille, briar, minerality and blueberry and blackberry overtones. This plush, opulent wine has great density, savory flavors and a very lengthy finish that gets better with age. The vineyards of Bodegas El Nido include 12Ha (29.7 acres) of Cabernet Sauvignon and 32Ha (79 acres) of very old Monastrell, with a very low yield. The grapes are harvested in small baskets to prevent bruising, and only the best bunches are selected.
Variety: Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon blend
Region: Jumilla, Spain
