96 points "Even better than the smoking 2009, the 2010 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio is an over the top, decadent, and voluptuous effort that stays gorgeously drinkable and light on the palate. A blend of 70% Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre) and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 24 months in new French and American oak, it offers up a blockbuster styled bouquet of smoky black raspberry, crème de cassis, coffee, chocolate, and spice that flows to a extremely rich, full-bodied palate that has layers of sweet fruit, an unctuous texture, and chewy, yet velvety tannin that lends focus on the finish. Despite all of the size and richness here, it never seems heavy or cumbersome, and is easy to drink. Make no mistake, this is a big, rich wine that shows sweet fruit and plenty of oak; it will not be for everyone. Nevertheless, it is beautifully made and a joy to dr ink. Superb now with a decant (and I see no reason to delay gratification), it will drink well for at least a decade, most likely much longer.” "
