The 2019 Gran Corte is still a bit oaky after the wine matured in 100% new French oak barrels. It’s a slightly different blend each year, and in 2019 it is 55% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah that ripened thoroughly to 14.5% alcohol, making the wine ripe and a bit heady, powerful but balanced and with abundant, fine-grained tannins. 10,000 bottles were filled in October 2021.

A profound and brooding nose with blue and purple fruit and flowers. Spices, violets and a hint of asphalt. A co-fermentation of malbec and cabernet franc. Very fleshy and round on the full-bodied palate with plenty of fine-grained tannins and a flavorful finish. Better after 2025.
