Charcuterie with imported Spanish Meats, Cheeses and Olives with an Herb Vinaigrette – $6.50

Charcuterie with imported Spanish Meats, Cheeses and Olives with an Herb Vinaigrette – $6.50

This dish is the same as last year, except it’s now served in a plastic cup instead of a cone. We really liked this dish. Everything seems fresh. The olives are firm, the cheese is brittle, and the meats are tender. The herb vinaigrette adds a nice coating of subtle flavors to everything without overpowering the other tastes.

*NEW* Spanish-style Paella with Chorizo, Shrimp, and Rice – $5.50

Spanish-style Paella with Chorizo, Shrimp, and Rice – $5.50

Spanish-style paella is a staple at the Spain booth, the dish returned this year with a slight change in ingredients. This year added chorizo, shrimp, and rice to the mix. The paella wasn’t as good as the charcuterie. The rice seems a little overdone and the shrimp is nothing to write home about. If anything, the chorizo is the winner of the dish, giving it a little kick. Otherwise, the paella is blander than we expected.

Casa Castillo Monastrell, Jumilla ($12/bottle) – $5.00

From Luis Gutiérrez: “This has notes of fresh fruit with a spicy touch and is quite pure. The palate is juicy, vibrant and tasty, with super fine tannins and a spicy finish. This wine reflects the general character of the estate. It has 15% alcohol, reflecting the natural conditions, but with an incredible balance that makes the alcohol feel perfectly integrated.”

Espelt Garnacha Old Vines, Catalonia ($11/bottle) – $5.00

From Jeb Dunnuck: ” Loads of kirsch liqueur, black cherries, licorice, and scorched earth notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, nicely balanced red that has a classy style, good acidity, and fine tannins.”
