Winemaker's Notes

Viña Cobos' most sophisticated Felino malbec yet carries a deep magenta hue and aromas of dark berries and anise. On the palate, intense, pure flavors of justpicked raspberries, black plum and graphite unfold in velvety layers. Exotic notes of ginger and white pepper carry through the mid-palate to intermingle with firm tannins and notes of cedar on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This selection of malbec comes from several mountain zones in Mendoza between altitudes of 2,300 and 3,800 feet. The blend is lively and delicious, with seductively ripe raspberry flavors that hold their freshness within the creamy texture. An elegant malbec."
92 Points

"Potent Malbec with aromas of leather, bacon, blackberry and smoke. It’s thick and dense, but well balanced, with flavors of blackberry, cola, pepper and nutmeg. More smooth and easy than complex, with a long, creamy, sweet finish that cements the wine’s character. Probably the best Felino Malbec to date, and a good value at 20 bucks."
