Right away this blend is clicking. Aromas of blackberry and cassis are clean and well presented. A full, free-flowing palate is in balance and showing only modest tannic grab. Blackberry, toast and chocolate flavors finish bold and a little choppy.

Wine Advocate 91
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 élevage (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.

Vinous Media 91
(60% Malbec blended with 20% each Syrah and Cabernet Franc; aged 24 months in new French oak): Saturated ruby. Inviting, dark aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, espresso, violet, menthol and sweet oak. Tight-grained and suave, with bright acidity framing the plush black fruit flavors and giving the palate a weightless impression. Finishes with serious but fine tannins and lovely subtle length.
