James Suckling Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Valle de Uco
"A precise and beautiful young malbec with mineral, raspberry and light clove character. Full body, fine tannins and a bright finish." –June 2015
Wine Spectator Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Valle de Uco
"Concentrated and rich, featuring flavors of dark cherry, roasted plum and currant, with notes of black olive and tarragon. Dark chocolate and savory spice details on the finish are supported by firm tannins. Drink now through 2020. 1,500 cases imported."
Wine Enthusiast Viña Cobos, 2013 Bramare Malbec, Valle de Uco
"Ripe, heady, slightly malty aromas of blackberry and plum set this on its way. In the mouth, there are scratchy, unresolved tannins and acidity to deal with along with salty flavors of oak, plum and cassis. A lasting, oaky finish with vanilla and butter notes provides for a good close out. Drink through 2020." –Oct-16
Hand-harvested exclusively from the prime La Consulta and Tupungato sub-regions of the Valle de Uco at elevations between 3,330 and 3,840 feet. The vineyards are composed of sandy and rocky patches with significant slopes which aid in drainage. The juice is fermented with selected and native yeasts in closed-top, stainless steel tanks followed by native malolactic fermentation in barrel (3 months to completion). The wine is then aged 18 months in French and American oak barrels (~30% new) before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
