I opened a bottle of Gran Feudo 2007 Rose Friday night and I’m just getting around to post an entry.

This is a widely distributed Rose from the Navarra region of Spain. If you’ve tried some Rose and it’s not quite big enought to your tastes, you might try the Gran Feudo. It is 100 percent Garnacha and has a bit more of punch to the flavor.

It has a big fruity nose but you can immediately tell its not a light Rose. I thought it had some vanilla hints. Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator gave this wine an 85 – a good solid choice but not spectacular.

But if you are experimenting with Rose, this is one you should try. It’s definitely got a bigger flavor.

Like mose Rose wine it’s very affordable at $8.99-$12.98. I picked this one up from Jill Ditmire at Mass Ave Wine shop.

I have had Rose from several varieties now and still like the Spanish Garnacha-based wine the best. But that’s just motivation to keep up the research!
