Viña Cobos, 2015 Bramare Malbec Valle de Uco

"Shows focus and intensity. Medium to full body, lots of pretty fruit intensity and a dried fruit and chocolate undertone. Drink or hold. Punchy."
Wine Advocate
Viña Cobos, 2015 Bramare Malbec Valle de Uco

"The Valle de Uco bottling from the Bramare range, the 2015 Bramare Valle de Uco Malbec is produced with grapes from the cooler, higher-altitude part of Mendoza. It's a blend of different vineyards and zones, some younger and some older, and it aged in oak barrels for 17 months. It's ripe and quite oaky—both conditions that, to me, hide a little of the character of the grape and place. It's riper than the 2014, with some grainy tannins and moderate acidity. 55,200 bottles were filled in November 2017."

Varietal 100% Malbec

San Carlos, Tupungato and Tunuyán, Valle de Uco. Located at high elevation: 3,330-3,845 feet (1,015-1,172 meters). Semi-desert climate.

The soils are very heterogeneous, with sand and rocky patches. Vines are planted on a pronounced slope, providing good drainage for the soils, and cool nights that contribute to even fruit ripening.

Growing Season
The season presented several challenges relating to weather conditions: a cool spring, with lower than average temperatures and late frosts affecting yields. Mid-summer saw heat waves and rain, resulting in a natural thinning of the grape bunches. Harvest started erlier than usual in some areas. Yields: 4.0 tons per acre.

Aging & Bottling
Aged for 18 months in new French oak (25%) and new American oak (5%), as well as second-use oak (70%). Bottled in December 2016. Unfined and unfiltered.
