The 2007 Clio is made up of 67% old vine Monastrell sourced from a vineyard planted in 1944 and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted in 1979. The alcoholic fermentation is in oak followed by ML in new barrels and aging for 26 months in new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an in-your-face bouquet of wood smoke, underbrush, incense, blueberry, and black currant. Dense, chewy, packed and stacked, the fruit quality is superb, the balance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It will be controversial with those who prefer low alcohol and finesse in their wines. Those who like unrestrained power and richness will adore it quite aside from the fact that it over-delivers for its relatively modest price. Drink it from 2011 to 2022. Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate

Lithe and balanced, this fresh, modern red brims with black cherry, licorice, smoke and black pepper flavors. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, the acidity is lively and the wine sings through the vibrant finish. Drink now through 2017. 1,125 cases imported.

Black fruits, brightness and a friendly sweetness are the aromatic greeting. The palate is intense and thick, with creamy, medicinal berry and molten plum flavors. A little aggressive and minty, but likable and ready to roll. 70% Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
