"If you like sweet fruit bomb wines from Argentina, this blend of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc won’t appeal. But if you’re a fan of nuanced, elegant, beautifully crafted reds, it will. Deeply-coloured, structured and built to age in bottle, with the Cabernets adding rigour and perfume to the cuvée."

"The top of the range is the 2012 Gran Corte, a blend of 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard called Las Divas in Tupungato planted 10 years ago at 1,200 meters altitude. The altitude no doubt provided some freshness that seems to have compensated for the heat of the vintage allowing the wine to come through as balanced, serious and ripe without excess. There is a lot of black pepper flavor making it feel very spicy on a palate with good concentration, acidity and length. A very worthy Uco blend. 10,421 bottles produced."

"(60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc): Full medium ruby. Brooding, tight nose offers medicinal scents of blackberry and licorice along with a slightly raw herbal element. Broad, dry and weightless in the mouth, showing very good concentration and chewy texture but little easy sweetness in the early going. The longest of these 2012s, this needs time to harmonize and express itself but offers outstanding potential."
