Pago de Los Capellanes
Ribera Del Duero D.O.
Tinto Reserva
2006
$55

Spain makes a lot of wine. This is truly one of their best wines from one of their top regions. The Ribera Del Duero makes some of the most famous wines in the world, and in the world of Spanish wine this region puts out a few blue chips. This wine is definitely of that quality. Pago de Los Capellanes is a CSBH favorite, from their Joven all the way to their Gran Reserva. In my opinion, and for the money, the Reserva is their best.

Brought to us by former employee Antonio Martinez through his Spanish wine import business Antalva Imports, this 100% Tempranillo is a blockbuster. It spends 18 months in oak before receiving additional time to age in bottle before release. If you're thinking about opening a Bordeaux to go along with a holiday rib roast, and are thinking of changing things up this year, I would give this bottling from Spain some serious thought.

Zamorano
Sheep
Spain
$30/lb

The cousin of Manchego! From the Spanish province of Zamora, it is slightly more gamey and serious than its cousin from La Mancha. Always raw milk aged for 60 days or longer, this is a great cheese: salty and sweet. Have it with that last glass of red after your holiday feast.
