Bodegas El Nido El Nido Jumilla Cabernet Sauvignon Monastrell 2015

$99.95

...powerful, ripe and concentrated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Monastrell aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 23 months. It's bottled with 16% alcohol, not a shy wine but not one that shows heat, as it keeps the balance in an XL way. It feels concentrated, powerful and young, but the oak is surprisingly more integrated than in the 2014... it has a marked style, but for those who like this profile, this could very well be the finest vintage of El Nido to date...

The vineyards are 76.8 acres of very old vaso trained Monatrell vines and 28.8 acres of 30 year old Cab Sauvignon. A blend of 70% Cab Sauvignon & 30% old vine Monastrell aged 2 years. Dark red with big berry flavors & complex spice. On the palate rich ripe cherry & blackberry flavors with sweet vanilla spice, well balanced with acidity. Tannins are approachable but the wine is still very young, lingering finish ending with oak notes, bigger than the ‘14. Still needs time, don’t be tempted but if you have a reason to drink something great, open a bottle, but if you wait this will be great! Tasting Sample.

Now that was larger than life. Huge black cab fruit and tannin structure with more than a little brambly and gamey monastrell. Hard to believe it’s 16% ABV. My only regret is that it is way too young - I’ll wait a few more years before I open another.

This is great, wonderful Spanish blend which would be hard to distinguish in a high end Napa Cabernet line up. Not much to say except this is young but really enjoyable, great nose and depth of flavours on the palate. Highly recommended, give this a try.

Silky smooth. Glycerin, black fruit and Beaucoups alcohol (16%). Really different and surprising. Recommended.

Decanted for an hour, needs a few more. Black licorice, tobacco, leather, loads of dark fruit. A fantastic wine that is a newborn.
