Winemaker Notes

Big, oaky, extracted. After a couple hours in the decanter, it became less a fruit bomb, and began to show increasing minerality.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Clio is made up of 70% 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 malolactic fermentation in new barrels and aging for 24 months in new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits an expressive nose of pain grille, underbrush, brier, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry fruit leading to a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. In spite of its size, it is surprisingly light on its feet and can be approached now. However, it will evolve for 3-4 years and offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2023.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This modern red shows toasty oak, with spice, light cola and coffee notes, balanced by lively blackberry and boysenberry fruit, and supported by firm, well-integrated tannins. Juicy acidity keeps this fresh through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2018.
