CABERNET SAUVIGNON, Felino Vina Cobos 2017



vina cobos felino cabernet sauvignonA dark shade of garnet with ruby reflections. Aromas of black cherry, black currant, briar patch, hard candy and pencil shavings on the nose. Bright and luscious on the palate, with black cherry, blackberry, plum, abundant dark chocolate and subtle notes of earl grey tea and black pepper keeping it balanced. Viscous and round, with plush tannins and a delicious finish.

After visiting Argentina in 1989, Californian trail-blazer Paul Hobbs became deeply interested in both the terroir and Argentine culture, noticing the unique potential for Malbec and other varietals in the region. After meeting two kindred spirits, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud, they founded Viña Cobos in 1997 and since then there has been no looking back. Utilising gnarly old vines, careful vineyard selection, very low yields and an unerring empathy for the raw materials, Viña Cobos craft intense yet balanced wines that showcase the elegance and beauty of this region. The wines from Cobos have branched into four different brands – Felino, Bramare appellation, Bramare Single Vineyard and the super premium Cobos. Binding all of the wines from Viña Cobos is the true identity of each variety and the unique terroir of Mendoza, truly world class wines from a world class producer.
