You read the subject line correctly. If you like big red wine, this is an absolute do not miss. These two wines will be two of the highest quality offerings we have this year.
Clio and El Nido have been two of the hardest wines for us to source since we opened for business. If you are not familiar with the wines, they are Monastrell and Cabernet based powerhouses from the Gil Family (you can read more on the family from a recent Wine Spectator article HERE).
Gil Family Estates looked to replicate the success that Bodegas El Nido (Clio) had in Jumilla in the Campo de Borja by creating Bodegas Morca. When I say replicate, I really mean replicate. For instance, the Bodegas Morca “Touran” is in the same bottle as El Nido, packed in the same two packs as El Nido, in the same 4 bottle case as El Nido. The “Morca” is packed in the same case as Clio etc. etc.
The wines are virtually identical in flavor. While they are not the same grapes (Morca is Garnacha based), I am willing to put a lot of money on the fact that if I served them side by side I am not sure even the most skilled taster could tell them apart.
Our growing relationship with the Gil Family has allowed us to get deeply involved in this project, and based on the quality of what we tasted we purchased nearly 60% of all the Touran that came into the United States and 40% of all the Morca that came into the US.
Sadly, that doesn’t translate to a lot of wine. For instance, we only have 500 bottles of Touran to sell (and nearly 200 of those are already gone).
Inexpensive these wines are not - but if you are looking for some absolutely insane, high quality, powerful red wine, you're gonna want to get involved here.
A perfect weekend treat to yourself!
