James Suckling Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Lujan de Cuyo
"This is is really beautiful with terracotta, tile, and white pepper plus dark fruit. Full and intense. Silky and open with so much going on. A gorgeous, seductive wine" –June 2015
Wine Spectator Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Lujan de Cuyo
"A savory and finely textured red, with a svelte structure and rich flavors of hot stone, dried raspberry and cedar. Cocoa powder accents enliven the spicy and fresh finish. Best after 2019. 1,500 cases imported."
Vinous Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Lujan de Cuyo
"Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of black- and redcurrant, coffee and mocha. Supple, plush and seamless, but with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors of currant, mocha and sweet oak. A sexy touch of chocolate adds to the impression of ripeness. Finishes broad and long, with the energy and grip to age. But this tasty Malbec won't hurt your teeth if you open it early." –Mar-16
Luján de Cuyo is known historically as the ‘prime zone’ for wine-growing in Mendoza. Its high elevation location (3,251-3,467 ft), in combination with a semi-desert climate and
low-nutrient gravelly soils provide ideal conditions for growing grapes.
