James Suckling Viña Cobos, 2012 Bramare Cabernet Sauvignon, Lujan de Cuyo
"This is a very structured and powerful cabernet sauvignon with chewy tannins yet polished and refined. Full body, with racy tannins and a long, long finish. Plenty of currant and mineral character." –July 2014
Vinous Viña Cobos, 2012 Bramare Cabernet Sauvignon, Lujan de Cuyo
"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and dark chocolate are complemented by exotic oak tones. Broad on entry, but then tougher in the middle than its Malbec sibling, showng a slightly medicinal quality to its black fruit and licorice flavors. I like the push-pull of savory and sweet elements, but the slightly drying tannins will require a few years of cellaring."
"The 2012 Bramare Cabernet Sauvignon Luján de Cuyo Appellation fermented in stainless steel and matured in new and used oak barrels for some 17 months. It's a ripe and balsamic Cabernet with plenty of Mediterranean herb aromas plus ripe blackberries and plums that have just a hint of raspberry leaf and plenty of spices and cigar box notes. The palate is soft and round with moderate to low acidity along with good volume and density of ripe flavors intermixed with spicy, creamy oak. 28,000 bottles produced." –August 2015
