Product description

Deep purple, with intense concentration fruit of their stride by new French oak. Domina fruit with hints of cassis, currants and cherries, with hints of licorice and spices. Complex, elegant, with ripe tannins and great aging potential flavor.

93 Points - James Suckling    A rich and juicy red on the nose with chocolate, dark berry and spice undertones. Medium to full body, round and soft tannins and a savory finish. Opulent style yet rich and clean.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Classic Uco Valley aromas of deep berry fruits are touched-up by cheesy oak that lends tobacco and vanilla to the nose. On the palate, this blend of Malbec, Syrah and Cab Franc is choppy, acidic and still raw after years in the bottle. Cherry, plum and raspberry flavors are Bordeaux-like, while staunch acidity returns on the finish. Drink through 2028—this will last for ages. 

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Ripe, earthy and oaky, as if it was from a different era, the 2012 Gran Corte is a blend of 60 Malbec, 20 Cabernet Franc and 20 Syrah that matured in new French oak barrels for two years. Time is rendering the fruit, while some tannins might remain. I think it's better to drink it up.
