Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2007 Chivite Gran Feudo Reserva, composed of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in new French Oak barrels for 18 months; has concentrated aromas of cherry, raspberry, vanilla and subtle cedar and pine. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine, with checked acidity, refined tannins and a finish of medium length. Enjoy with food; drink now and for the next 5+ years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts – recommended for its value. Tasted at Churchill Cellars Portfolio tasting May/13.

2007 CHIVITE GRAN FEUDO Reserva is a pleasant and enjoyable medium bodied wine. Full of fruit and floral aromas...pairs well with steak! 89/100 - Tasted September 15, 2013
A deep ruby, with a lighter rim, showing its age. Full ripe soft fruit nose, with a touch of spice and the oak in which the wine has matured. Full bodied, with a good fruit balance. Complex palate with hints of oak. A pleasant, long finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
