Review: **+ $ Lo Brujo Garnacha, Calatayud, Spain, 2007

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Lo Brujo Garnacha.

Original tasting and review : This is Lo Brujo Garnacha, Calatayud, Spain, 2007, finished at 14% alcohol.

In the glass: Medium deep dusty red.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows old, tired red fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be well past its prime.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact, admittedly tired and shuffling at a very slow pace, but still drinkable.  This grenache saw its prime a few years ago, and shows more than its seven years of age.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for power it likely once yielded.  Probably was three to three and a half stars at its more-youthful prime.

Following long decant, one day under vacuum in partially filled bottle:  Actually picked up a bit of power and energy, lost some of its tiredness.
