Smooth and medium- to full-bodied with dark fruit and mocha aromas. A pleasant blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot grapes. Food pairings: tomato-based pasta dishes, grilled meats and mediterranian inspired pasta dishes. This Gran Feudo Reserva, Julian Chivite 2006 was reviewed by June 22, 2012 Natalie MacLean

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Dan Trcka 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.

Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: 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.
