2007 Papa Luna - A Wonderful Spanish Blend

I said I would start writing again, so here we go. Once again, I am sorry for taking so long, life sometimes gets in the way. I had to stop writing, but I did not stop drinking.

To begin the winter season, I want to introduce you to a really nice full bodied Spanish Red. I am big on Spain right now.

Papa Luna 2007 produced by Norrel Robertson in Calatayud Spain (LCBO price is $16.95 - LCBO 39883).

The Review
My Rating is 89 out of 100

This wine was a huge hit a few years ago. This vintage is an unfiltered red blend of 70% Granacha, 25% Shiraz and 5% Mazuela Y Monastrell. Upon opening the bottle a beautiful aroma of dried fruit emerged. In the glass, this wine was a dark purple and just begged to be drunk. After an hour decant, all the complex flavors began to blend into a really nice full bodied red wine. Hints of dried fruit, dark berries and a touch of oak was apparent to me. The finish was really nice and the acidity was on the low side.

This young wine needs some time to breath before it is drunk and can be stored in your cellar for a few more years. Drink now or hold, either way you will enjoy this well priced Spanish Red.

Music Review to come….
