Clio - Gil Family Estates, Jumilla, Spain

Clio is a Spanish red wine blend crafted as a collaboration between the Gil Family, Chris Ringland, and other oenologists. The wine is made from 70% old vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and spends 22-26 months in barrel.

The wine is dark cherry red with an intense nose of ripe cassis and red fruit with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice, which brings finesse and elegance. Strength, flesh, savory, and opulence combine on the palate. $53.00

Rotllan Torra Priorat

Priorat is a small and relatively new Denominacion in Spain's rugged and mountainous north east.  This high altitude wine growing area is known for its unique terroir of black slate and quartz and yields elegant and structured blends based on the varietal Grenache. It is one of only two wine regions in Spain to qualify as DOCa, the highest qualification level for a wine region according to Spanish wine regulations, alongside Rioja DOCa. 

This Priorat delivers both Old World and New World characteristics, offering an approachable fruit-driven profile.  Licorice and dark cherry fruit aromas fill the glass while velvety tannins add weight and texture on the palate.  $18.99 

The 2006 vintage earned 90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate!

Anciano 'Gran Reserva' Tempranillo 2001

Incense, leather, cigar box, and black cherry notes fill the glass.  The acidity and tannins have softened over the years, giving this red no hard edges.  Drink this wine now, or over the next 6 years.  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate rated this wine 90 points.  $13.99
