Viña Cobos, 2016 Viña Cobos 'Felino' Cabernet Sauvignon

"As with most of the high-volume cuvées, the 2016 Felino Cabernet Sauvignon mixes grapes from different origins, mainly Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel vats, with 10% of the volume matured in new American oak barrels, and they also slowly introduced French barriques, for around one year. It's very varietal and pungent, with strong herbal and peppery aromas, quite classical (what comes to mind is that it feels more "European"), with less volume and more tension, good freshness and the legendary refined tannins from the variety. Clean, focused and fresh. Another wine showing good progression"
