MEXICAN WINE, PAVO REAL WINES

Posted by elliottt14, Feb 4, 2016.

MEXICO!

Pavo Real Wines are cultivated in Valle De Guadalupe, Baja, Mexico. A plentiful and exceptional Viticulture region, wines have been cultivated in Mexico since the Spanish first arrived in the 16th century. Until now, these wines have been enjoyed within the Mexican borders. 

Blended by MS Ian Cauble and Imported Directly into the United States this year, 2016.

Just one wine we're talking about here? What's the blend? All from one site?

Hey guys! 

 

Two Wines, a red blend and a white blend. 

I own the brand and I am importing them into the US.... 

Pavo Real wines are cultivated in Valle de Guadalupe at Vides de Guadalupe Domecq winery, part of Pernod Ricard México. A plentiful and exceptional viticulture region, wines have been cultivated in Mexico since the Spanish first arrived in the 16th century. Until now, these wines have been enjoyed within Mexican borders. Vides de Guadalupe Domecq is bringing this unique Mexican experience north of the Guadalupe River for the first time. 

 

The wines are blended by prestigious and internationally recognized sommelier, Ian Cauble. Ian Cauble has been a Master Sommelier since 2012 and gained worldwide recognition when featured in the critically acclaimed documentary Somm, which documented Ian’s journey to pass the infamously difficult Master Sommelier exam.

Interesting red blend...rarely see Grenache blended with Cabernet, and not familiar with Ruby Cabernet either?

It's interesting, Jon, that Ruby Cabernet seems to be grown a lot in BC.  I can think of two blends that I have had from there that included it--Tres Valles Kuwal (blended with Grenache and Tempranillo) and.Casa Pedro Domecq Reserva Real (blended with Barbera).

Grenache as Garnacha and Cabernet are blended in Priorat in some of the top wines like L'Ermita, but there's often Carinena in there, too.  And sometimes other things as well. 

I had a Furvus from Baja recently that a friend served and it had Barbera and Cab--also new to me.  It was really good. 

Ruby Cabernet was a hybrid created at Davis, yes?  Cab and carignane, mostly used in bulk wines.  I think the idea was to get Cab's good traits and Carignane's ability to grow just about anywhere hot.  Didn't really work out all that well.

It is pretty amazing what is happening in Valle Guadalupe right now. A lot of small new wineries popping up, some with amazing quality. I visited Valle de Guadalupe a few years ago and its an awesome place to visit. People very friendly, still not too overrun by tourists and winemakers are happy that you visit and try there wines. There are some beautiful hotels and incredibly good restaurants as well. Fly to San Diego, rent a car and spend a few days there. Its great and with the Dollar-Peso exchange rate very affordable as well. If anybody is interest let me know, I am happy to advise you where to stay, where to eat and what wineries to visit...

 

@Elliott: I haven´t seen the Pavo Real wines down here in Mexico, do you know who distributes them in Mexico City?

I don´t think that anybody here besides me is located in central Mexico, but the best yearly mexican wine festival is coming up again:

www.100vinosmexicanos.com

Its held at the Redonda winery and almost every mexican wine maker is presenting their wines. It´s about 2.5 hours drive from Mexico City and about 45 minutes from Queretaro and its a great event to taste lots of mexican wines.

Thanks for the post, dgc, and sounds like it would be worth a visit to that festival. Not mobile enough now, unfortunately. If you're going it'd be great to see any reports you'd like to share...

JD - Ruby Cabernet is one of the grapes produced at UC Davis. After Prohibition, the US wine industry was wrecked and they were looking for jug wine mostly. They wanted things that would grow in the hot Central Valley and they crossed lots of grapes to come up with something. They developed a few grapes but I don't know that any of them are used in "fine" wine. Ruby Cab has been used in jug wines for many years though, because it did what it was supposed to do - produce well.

I'd be interested in tasting that wine.

Here is an article in today's paper on Valle de Guadalupe wines.   I posted it here, GregT, because it mentions a tasting room in your neck of the woods that features these wines.
