Gran Feudo Reserva, Julian Chivite 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

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.
See my wine recommendations readily available at the LCBO here:
|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.|
