Spain may not be the first country that comes to mind when you’re after a top-quality, great-value Cabernet, but it definitely deserves your attention. There are brilliant Cabs to be found here, and La Cueva Cabernet Sauvignon is one you won’t want to miss.

La Cueva hails from Bodegas Ruberte in Spain’s rugged Campo de Borja. With a winemaking history dating back to 1203, this region is perfectly suited to growing grape vines. Its hot climate allows thick-skinned grapes like Cabernet to ripen fully, while the well-draining soils force vines to bury their roots deep in search of water and nutrients, making for lower yields of more complex grapes.

Once Mother Nature did her work in the vineyards, a team of talented women winemakers took over the cellar. Susana Ruberte, the family’s matriarch, worked alongside her two daughters, Alicia and Ana, and expert winemaker Pamela Geddes (below). Pamela’s decades of experience includes stints at famous estates Penfolds and Torres, and she also makes some of our best-selling Spanish wines.

The team aged the wine in La Cueva, the Bodega family’s ancient cellar. Carved into the mountainside overlooking the town of Borja, the cellar was hand-dug by their ancestors over 500 years ago. Inside its cool, dark caverns, La Cueva Cabernet mellowed to perfection, resulting in an elegant wine with expressive dark fruit, tobacco and peppery spice characters.

Order your share of this unique Cabernet today. Then, when it arrives, enjoy it alongside Spanish tapas, roasted lamb, suckling pig and more.
