2017 Felino Cabernet Sauvignon, Luján de Cuyo & Maipu, Viña Cobos, Mendoza
Deep ruby red. On the nose, aromas of forest fruits are complemented by spicy notes. The flavours on the palate are round and concentrated, supported by firm tannins that indicate maturity and balance.
After visiting Argentina in 1989, Californian trail-blazer Paul Hobbs became deeply interested in both the terroir and Argentine culture, noticing the unique potential for Malbec and other varietals in the region. After meeting two kindred spirits, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud, they founded Viña Cobos in 1997 and since then there has been no looking back. Utilising gnarly old vines, careful vineyard selection, very low yields and an unerring empathy for the raw materials, Viña Cobos craft intense yet balanced wines that showcase the elegance and beauty of this region.
