There is a big jump to the top of the range, in all senses, making, quality... and price. The 2011 Gran Corte is a blend that is more or less replicated each vintage. This 60% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 20% Cabernet Franc wine aged for 24 months in brand new French oak barrels. This feels more like a Bordeaux than its siblings do. It has plenty of influence from the ᅢᄅlevage (still at age four) with toasty oak, sweet spices and smoke enveloping a core of ripe berry fruit. The palate is medium to full-bodied with abundant, grainy tannins that need more time in bottle to get polished. The acidity is enough, and the wine feels quite fresh, but you still notice the faint bitter flavors of the oak in the finish. It should develop in bottle for some time. 30,000 bottles produced.
