Description

Everyone has been waiting for Clio to come back - But it hasn't made it. 

If you need a fix, this is the "Baby" Clio.  This is the third big Monastrell-dominant wine from the Juan Gil Famliy.  The first wine is Bodegas El Nido "Nido" ($100), next "Clio" ($55), and then Juan Gil "Blue Label" Monastrell at a very attractive $33.  For some of you, this wine could become an everyday favorite as opposed to a stand-in for Clio. 

Winemaker Notes

Brilliant red in the glass. A light roasted aroma complemented by fresh berries. Savory notes of earth and black tea balanced with a rich core of black fruits. Round tannins, good acidity.

The Monastrell vineyards used to produce this wine are situated at an elevation of 2,800 feet above sea level with an average vine age of 55 years. They are situated on chalky and sandy hillside soils with excellent drainage, allowing them to ripen in optimal conditions. The production does not exceed one ton per acre. The Cabernet and Syrah vineyards are located at 2,300 feet above sea level with an average vine age of 15 years. The fermentation is carried out separately in small open tank fermenters. The wine is then aged for 18 months in new French and American oak barrels.

Blend: 60% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Syrah

Dry-farmed, no pesticides or herbicides, hand-harvested, Vegan.
