Like the bat, or el murciélago, Spanish Cabernet Sauvignons can sometimes be misunderstood. The country is better known for specializing in other varieties, but this Cabernet will surprise you. Garnet and purple hued, the wine features ripe red and black berries on the nose, dominated by plump cherry and plum on the palate. The pleasant acidity and warm, lingering finish show that this Spanish Cab, at least, is capable of sustained flight — much like el murciélago.
Spanish Cabernet Sauvignon: Originating in Bordeaux, France, Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular grapes on earth and can be found planted and grown all over the world, including Spain. Here it is often found blended with Tempranillo and much is produced in the Catalan region on the Eastern Coast. The Cabernet used in this wine is from vineyards in the South-East of Spain, most specifically around the area of Valencia.
