I am going to a multi-course gormet dinner of Cuban food in a friend's home. I believe that the main dish is some type of chicken. I offerred to bring the wine. Any suggestions on wine that pairs well with Cuban food?

This is a tricky question, actually. I was in Cuba (legally)in 2001. The food there is incredibly bland, because spices are very expensive and they are quite poor.
Every meal had either beans and rice, or, sometimes rice and beans.
But, how your friends are going to prepare the food is another question.
My guess is you are looking at alot of starches and the food tends to be heavy. You might get some foods with peppers.
Let us know how it works out.

I orefer to drink what the average Cuban drinks - GRand Cru Burgundy and Classified Growth Bordeaux. The wealth and prosperity those folks experience in their utopia allows them to enjoy the finest of everything on a daily basis. When in Havana, do as they do.
