2009 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio
Region: Jumilla, Murcia, Spain
Beautiful wine. Dark crimson red with a purplish core. Layered nose with smoked wood, baking spices, vanilla, cinnamon, stewed and pureed berries. Bright acidity and great structure. Tons of dark fruits and plums in the attack with damp leaves and mushrooms. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied. Very well integrated and balanced. Delicious long and dry finish.
