Bodega San Gregorio 2005 Papa Luna (Spain)
From the Catalayud region of Spain comes this tasty little number in the fat bottle. Made from old vines Garnacha, Shiraz and Monastrell it's a delicious wine full of black fruit, plum and spice - I found that it smoothed right out once decanted, but it also lost much of its pleasant spiciness. So I think this one should have been left in the bottle because poured straight from the bottle it was a better wine ... oh well, you win(e) some you lose some. Still a very nice bottle of wine.
