The sampler comes with tasting notes for each wine, plus a chrome shell wine stopper for preserving any bottles that aren't empty at the end of the night.
The following wines are included in this sampler:
SIGNAT BRUT NATURE
A fresh and decidedly dry bubbly, this Signat will bring a sophisticated flair to your dinner table. Enjoy with an appetizer of cured Spanish cheeses, decadently buttery seafood dishes or Galician sardines preserved in olive oil. Pale in hue with a greenish tinge - this delicate cava is ready to be enjoyed with your next meal!
JESUS DIAZ BLANCO
Region: Vinos de Madrid
The Malvar grape is leading a renaissance in Madrid vineyards with its glowing pale yellow tone and pervasive floral aromas. A perfect pair to a fresh green salad, paella and other rice dishes, this wine is made from free run juice that flows from grapes crushed by their own weight – and never spends a moment in oak. Soft and citrusy on the palate with green apple finish – this is a drinkable white to remember.
JESUS DIAZ TINTO
Region: Vinos de Madrid
Picture a Pinot Noir with castanets. This Jesus Diaz Tempranillo is unabashedly cherry red with the snappy flavors of pomegranates and herbs and is the soul mate to roasted lamb. The winery from which this Tempranillo hails was once a convent that produced wines and distilled liquors for consumption in Madrid’s nearby taverns. Now family-owned and operated, the Jesus Diaz winery is revered for a versatile and well-balanced wine, meant to be savored.
BODEGAS LAR DE PAULA RESERVA
This red wine Reserva awaits your next gathering around the grill. Perfect with a filet mignon or a seared Ibérico de Bellota secreto, you’ll drink in aromas of spice, black fruit, tobacco and pepper. Relax with friends and raise a toast to the beauty of Spain.
ABELIS CARTHAGO WILLIAM SELECTION
Composition: Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo)
Composition: Meet William, the namesake wine of one of Toro’s top up and coming young winemakers, Guillermo Diez Rodriguez. This artisan red was handcrafted to please Guillermo’s harshest critic and most avowed fan, his mother. From the heart of Toro, this lush, full-bodied red is fermented in new French oak and imparts heady aromas of espresso, vanilla and blackberries. A rich fabada stew, a rack of lamb and a plate of fresh greens would round out the meal inspired by William.
We found the perfect partner to the dark chocolate-covered fig Rabito stuffed with brandy mousse: meet Marfil Violeta. A stunning ripe red dessert wine, the Marfil Violeta is only made in years when red grenache grapes reach their proper ripeness in the breezy Mediterranean climate north of Barcelona. You’ll taste the nuances of spice, cocoa and red fruit with each tantalizing sip.
