The 2012 El Nido, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Monastrell, is sourced from a dry and warm year, which the Gil family considered lighter, with a more commercial profile of easy-to-drink wines and less longevity than other vintages. The wine was bottled after maturing in French and American oak barrels for some 23 months. It has notes of smoked meat and plenty of spices, ripe black fruit without excess and some earthiness. The palate shows similar tannins as the 2012 Clio, slightly drier than the 2013s, in fact a little too tannic for the fruit. It should need some time to polish those edges but it won't be as long lived as the 2013. 6,000 bottles produced.

Dense yet lively, this expressive red shows black cherry, cranberry, licorice and cola flavors, with lively acidity and chewy tannins. A bit raw, but has plenty of stuffing. Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases made.  –TM

Giant out of the blocks, this full-bodied, midnight-black bruiser delivers a heavy blast of graphite, vanilla, coconut, char and blackberry on the nose. A heavy, tannic, borderline syrupy palate is appropriate for flavors of toasted coconut, vanilla and oak. A chocolaty finish loaded with barrel resin is rich and heady. This is an extracted heavyweight from a warm year. Some will love it; others will find it too oaky and overripe. Drink through 2021.
