Viña Cobos



2015 Cobos Malbec  Marchiori Estate Paul Hobbs  Mendoza:
the colour is a deep ruby red that is a bit transparent. The bouquet is  composed of rich and intensive blackberries, dried prunes and currants, as well as  hints of ripe black cherries.
On the palate the faun really begins: rich blackberries, intense blackcurrant, raisins and a sumptuous fruity sweetness with a lovely velvety impression.   This all was in perfect balanced with the slight bitterness displayed over time.  It is smooth and supported by well-integrated oaky tannins. It is a bit limited in texture,  rich and intense - but never overpowering. initially it is tailing off in intensity at the early stage, with a thinner finish of 40 second.  This impressive wine is an archetypical top Mendoza Merlot.  Drink until 2030.
