2016 Viña Cobos Felino Malbec

90
"The entry-level and highly available 2016 Felino Malbec mixes grapes from different zones of Mendoza—Valle de Uco, Luján de Cuyo and Maipú—but the percentage from Vale de Uco has been growing and is more than half the blend in 2016. It fermented in stainless steel vats with selected yeasts, and 10% of the volume matured in new American oak barrels, but they are slowly introducing maybe 1% French barriques. The idea is to show the fruit more and have the oak as a discrete touch only until bottling. It's floral and fresh, even with some blood orange citrus hints. The palate is gentle, with soft tannins and very good freshness, making it long and very tasty on the finish."
