The 2005 Clio, composed of 70% old-vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, is opaque purple-colored with an enthralling bouquet of pain grille, spice box, violets, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered, opulent, and full-flavored, this thick wine has superb concentration and balance. It will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025. Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate

Oak dominates this red, but it's delicious oak, with cola, toasty vanilla and smoke flavors. There's also plenty of fruit, tart cherry and raspberry, with ripe tannins and lip-smacking acidity. A modern style. Expressive and lively. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2012. 1,125 cases made.
