Bodegas El Nido El Nido 2002
Item No.: WDSR0067
Winery: --
Region(s): Murcia
Appellation: Jumilla
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz
Description: Well-known Australian winemaker, Chris Ringland, oversees the winemaking at this estate, fashioning intriguing reds with great depth as well as richness. These wines have broken all the parameters previously established by the backwater appellation of Jumilla.
Tasting Note: The 2002 El Nido is a blend of 25-year old Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and 60-year old Mourvedre (30%) that received the same winemaking treatment as its less expensive sibling. This stunning Spanish red further demonstrates what can be accomplished in Jumilla with modern winemaking and relatively old vines. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color to the rim as well as an extraordinary nose of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, creme de cassis, smoke, chocolate, and hints of tobacco as well as cedar. Rich and full-bodied, with less intrusive oak than in the Clio, this profound wine must be tasted to be believed
