The 2003 Dos (equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) is a modern-styled Spanish version of the famed St.-Emilion, Cheval Blanc. Intense blueberry, currant, and cherry scents soar from the glass of this powerful, dense ruby/purple-tinged effort. Ripe and elegant, with admirable intensity, texture, and purity, this beauty can be consumed now and over the next 4-5 years.

This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Cabernet Franc turns the preconception of Valencia on its head. It's dark and opaque in the glass; the aroma is a potent blend of fine black fruits, such as blackberries and plums, with notes of chocolate. In the mouth, it is huge, lush, ripe, round and chewy. Sweet tannins blend with lush acidity and produce an expressive and long finish featuring floral touches and licorice.

As Robert Parker has previously noted, Dos is Rafael Cambra's interpretation of Saint-Emilion's famous Chateau Cheval Blanc. Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Cabernet Franc aged 10 months in French oak and bottled unfiltered, the deep purple-colored 2004 Dos offers expressive blueberry and black currant aromas with a hint of vanilla spice in the background. It is ripe, layered and elegant with a velvety palate-feel and fine length. Drink this superb value over the next 4-6 years.

When you think of Spanish wine grapes, the first varietals that come to mind are Garnacha, Shiraz, Tempranillo and Monastrell. Let me tell you something, the wines produced from these grapes are usually very good. Now, there are two other varietals that tend to grow well is Spain, Valencia to be exact, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. These are the grapes that go in to making Dos. The wine is a 50/50 blend of the two noble varietals. With aromas of crushed raspberries and blueberries on the nose, Dos intrigues you into the first, wonderful sip, then BANG! You're hooked. The rich blackberry and cherry flavors take over, aided by a spicy vanilla backbone. The finish is comprised of a slight herbal characteristic and lush, silky tannins. Drink this beauty with Chateaubriand and a good friend.
