    ($46; 70% monastrell with 30% cabernet sauvignon) Deep, bright ruby. Powerful aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky herbs, potpourri and Asians spices. Weighty dark berry flavors display a liqueur-like depth, with zesty minerality providing lift and velvety tannins adding support. Manages to be large-scaled and lithe at once, finishing with real cut and clarity. This seamless wine is delicious now, and I'd be inclined to drink it young for its alluring, vivacious fruit.

    70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.Very young and slightly reduced at the moment. Sweet and juicy and impressive but for tasting not for drinking. (JH)

    The purple/black 2006 Clio is composed of 70% old vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 26 months in new oak. It offers up a super-sexy nose of underbrush, incense, lavender, blueberry muffin, and black currant. Voluptuous and creamy on the palate, this loaded, well-balanced wine is a total turn-on. For those who prefer their flavor in moderation, look elsewhere. Drink this pleasure-bent effort from 2011 to 2021.

    Dark ruby red. Luscious sweet berries on the nose with soft burning incense aromas. Intense sweet fruit on the palate; powerful rich blueberry, blackcurrant and creamy vanilla, backed with soft spicy oak.

    Deep dark ruby red, gorgeous nose of ripe cherries and blueberries, smooth well integrated tannins with a almost 60 second finish. Even better the next day when the tannins smoothed out beautifully. A really nice wine for the money.

    Just a brief comment to once again indicate the spectacular balance, mouth-watering, fruit-forward and elegant structure of the 2006 Clio.

    Just one of my absolute favorite wines. I will be buying a case every vintage of this bruiser. Very dark black fruit and oak bomb with 15.5% alcohol that is completely integrated. Very young wine with very firm sharp tannins and loads of jammy fruit. Awesome wine, buy if you can.
