Vintages Wine Panel: Julian Chivite, who died in 1997, came from a Navarra-based winemaking family. His Viñas Viejas, a Tempranillo blend, is made from his 45-65-year-old vines. Chivite was a bit of a traditionalist: “Great wines,” he said, “are made from vineyards that have been properly cultivated, and fine wines from such vineyards have finesse and complexity”. This wine is proof in a bottle of his philosophy. My note: A terrific producer across the board (I especially love his roses), this bottling offers rich, ripe notes of black fruit and vanilla smoke. Full-bodied with good balance. Tempranillo Blend food pairings: prime rib steak, hard cheeses, duck, zucchini, grilled eggplant.
