Containing more Malbec than previous releases, this blend with 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot is spicy and concentrated, with flavours of gingerbread and blackberry and a grassy undertone. 2019-25.
Baked black-fruit aromas hint at prune and raisin on the nose of this Malbec-based Bordeaux-style blend. The dense, full-bodied palate is a bit viscous, while ripe berry and chocolate flavors culminate with toasty richness and plenty of weight.
The 2015 Numina Gran Corte is a blend of 68% Malbec, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot sourced from their oldest vines from their El Oasis vineyard in Los Árboles. It fermented separately in 7,000-liter oak vats and spent six months in barrels before being blended, and then was put back in those barrels to complete an élevage of 16 months. It feels ripe, with notes of plums and raisins and has a juicy, soft palate, with moderate concentration.
Well-structured, with accents of dried herbs to the plum and dark currants flavors. Offers stony and minerally notes midpalate, showing hints of dried mint on the spicy finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
