Pago De Carraovejas Crianza 2009

Back in April (I've been remiss in my wine blogging, yes) I had a fantastic Spanish Crianza at a business dinner at La Gran Pulperia in Madrid.  Pago De Carraovejas Crianza 2009 (35 Euros / bottle).  My good friend and colleague Javier picked it out from the impressive and extensive wine list that La Gran Pulperia had.  It went great with dinner, and is highly recommended. If in doubt, and you're looking for a reasonably priced Spanish red that packs in excellent value and taste without rendering a hang-over, go with the Pago De Carraovejas Crianza. 

The delicious dinner at La Gran Pulperia also renewed my faith in tapas, which had been in the decline.  Javier & Jose and I had a great dinner, and then 2 more colleagues joined us, and we continued to eat and drink until late in the night.
