YES, YOU CAN enjoy beautifully-aged, compelling wines of distinction from Spain without going broke. Don't believe me? Check out today's Six-Pack Special, the 2008 Marqués de Griñón Dominio de Valdepusa "Svmma Varietalis" Vino de Pago!

Marqués de Griñón wines are sourced from the prized Dominio de Valdepusa vineyard in Castilla-La Mancha, which has pioneered the use of modern winemaking technologies and the planting of international varietals while at the same time showcasing the unique terror of the region. It became the first estate to receive Vino de Pago status, which designates single estates of exceptional quality that exhibit the special characteristics of a pago, or a landmass with unique terroir. Valdepusa stands apart from the rest of the region, as its 1068-foot elevation is one of the highest in Spain, and its top layer of soil is similar to Burgundy’s — it is almost pure limestone. The local varieties of oak, wild olive trees, brush, thyme and rosemary contribute to the overall complexity and personality of the single estate. Today's offering beautifully exemplifies the estate's rich terroir as well as its dedication to superior craftsmanship. Check out the mad love from the press!

“Compact and harmonious up front, this three-grape blend delivers aromas of oak, dark berry fruits and prune. The palate is saturated and fully ripe, with wide tannins that don’t grate. Jammy berry, raisin, coconut, tobacco and creamy oak flavors finish long and ripe.” (October 1, 2014)

90 points, Wine Advocate
“The 2008 Dominio de Valdepusa Svmma Varietalis sees 12 months in Allier oak and is a blend of 70% Syrah with 18% Petit Verdot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and a dash of Graciano. It has a clean, fresh bouquet of dark cherries, blueberry, pencil lead and pine that is well-defined but needs to develop more personality. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe blackberry and bilberry fruit, crisp acidity and a pleasing, slightly toasty, savory finish that displays good length. (April 26, 2013)

The "Svmma Varietalis is KILLER RIGHT NOW; its fruit characters and secondary components are beautifully integrated, resulting in a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Drink like a rock star this holiday season, without spending like one. CHEERS!
