Marqués de Griñón Cabernet Sauvignon (Domino de Valdepusa)

Plant Cab on the hot plains of Central Spain?  What was D. Carlos Falcó thinking of?  But this pioneering Winemaker had the benefit of a Californian education to make him see things differently.  Despite being founded in 1292, this estate has been at the forefront of Spanish Winemaking for many years and has used modern science and understanding to craft superb wines from this ancient land.

I fell in love with this wine a long time ago, when it was pretty much the only Cab in Spain, outside of Catalunya.  Its ripe blackcurrants and dense chocolatey overtones have never really left me.  Whilst the Marqués has gone on to pioneer again and again with Syrah and Petit Verdot (also great wines), I can´t help but come back to my first love.  When the late British celebrity chef Keith Floyd visited, whilst filming "Floyd on Spain", the Cab was matched with partridge in chocolate sauce.  Sounds crazy perhaps, but not a million miles from the spicy red and mole pairings popular in modern Mexican cuisine.
