Tasting Note: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Monastrell, aged 24 months in French and American oak. Glass-staining purple color. Explosive, alluring scents of blueberry, boysenberry, pipe tobacco, licorice and vanilla bean. Lush and broad but juicy and firmly built. Suave candied dark fruit flavors accented by floral and Asian spice qualities. Finished broad, juicy and impressively long, with echoing boysenberry and spice notes. 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: Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell blend
Region: Jumilla, Spain
