91 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wne Cellar (ST) - Red fruit and spice flavors are complicated by mocha quality, with an element of vegetility adding nuance.

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

View: Light ruby color with reflections of evolution in the range of browns. Nose: delicate aroma of ripe red fruit, complex and very good match between the barrel and the wine. Perceived notes of vanilla and caramel. Taste: aromatic, with finesse and attack soft tannins and long. It has a full expression, with a final harmonious and persistent.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wne Cellar (ST)
(15.5% alcohol; 52% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Malbec; aged for 18 months in new French oak): Bright medium red. Complex, inviting aromas of plum, smoke, milk chocolate, spices and flowers, with a strong element of smoky herbs. Suave, sweet and energetic but mellow too; stuffed with fruit yet light on its feet and elegant. Red fruit and spice flavors are complicated by mocha quality, with an element of vegetility adding nuance. Finishes with lush, broad, fine-grained tannins and noteworthy subtle length.

89 pts Robert Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate (LG) Luis Gutierrez The oily/olive sensations are even stronger in the 2011 Grand Vin, a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec that is ripe and matured in oak barrels, which added spicy sensations. Juicy and heady, this is slightly sweet toward the finish. 7,854 bottles produced.

Winemaker Notes

Varietal Composition of wine: 52% Merlot, 37% Cab. Sauvignon 11% Malbec. Wood aging parameters (type of wood, age of barrels, time in barrels): 16 months in new French oak barrels, then bottles were stored for 12 months with controlled temperature light and humidity before releasing. Extended maceration for up to 45 days ensures the soft tannins and an elegant profile. The Gran Vin is aged for 16 months in the French oak barrels and held in our cool cellars to develop in bottle for several years.
