Casir dos Santos Gran Corte

2014 Casir Dos Santos Gran Corte - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2014 Gran Corte is a blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipú that fermented separately before being blended and put in barrel to mature for 12 months after malolactic in contact with the lees. It's a classical well-oaked and generous red, with plenty of ripe fruit, smoke and spices and a full-bodied palate with abundant, slightly astringent tannins in the style of the late 1990s. For fans of the style. It was bottled in December 2016. 6,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

2014 Casir Dos Santos Gran Corte - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(14.4% alcohol, vs. 13.9% for the other two 2014 Casir dos Santos wines I tasted): Bright medium ruby. Vibrant scents of blackberry, black plum, licorice, tobacco and violet, complicated by hints of leather and menthol. Broad, plush and rich but not at all overly sweet, conveying a dark-chocolatey depth to its black fruit and spice flavors. Plenty of oak here but in a complementary role. The wine's serious ripe, dusty tannins are in harmony with the fruit on the slightly warm finish. I get a much riper impression of the Malbec here than in the varietal bottling.- Stephen Tanzer"
