Makes me want to get on a plane! Thanks for the great ideas and, as we know, a decent bottle of Cava goes with just about anything!

Another great article Mr. Guido. Yes Spanish is often unknown and overlooked by wine lovers, both amateur and knowledge in comparison to places like Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany, Piemonte, etc. In September I went to a wine party where we had a Dinastia Vivanco Crianza 2008 from Rioja. Right away on the nose you could get dark plums and on the palate vanilla, new oak and dark cherries. But the even more amazing wine was a Rioja blend without any of the 'usual suspects' from Rioja. This was from a producer called Casa Roja and it was a Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot blend with incredible depth, structure and multi-layered. Probably a Rioja that's not so easy to find, but definitely worth the search.
