Viña Cobos Cabernet Sauvignon Bramare 2009
This black-ruby hued offering embodies pure vibrant merlot character at its best. Greeting the nose with pure, ripe Bing cherry and blackberry aromas, it comes alive on the satiny palate; well-structured, lively berry flavors, spicy accents and a touch of cedar open to a memorable finish punctuated with clean minerality.
Bamboo and water chestnut dominate the nose in stunning and unusual fashion, and the savory note is present in the mouth as well, where it combines with dark fruit and a touch of citrus for a many-layered experience, the only defect being a somewhat bitter finish.

With a nose of chocolate, fresh wood, and blackberries, the 2009 Bramare Malbec doesn't disappoint. It shows ample body and a luxurious texture. I wouldn't turn down a glass of this, if it was offered to me.
Es un blend de 88% cabernet sauvignon, 8% syrah y 4 % petit verdot 8 meses en barrica de roble americano x Paul hobbs
Fantastica nariz, muy buen sabor en boca con largo final, notas de menta por los 18 meses en barrica francesa, dejar respirar o decantar, no esta filtrado.
An outstanding wine for dinner
External Reviews for Viña Cobos Cabernet Sauvignon Bramare
The 2007 Felino Malbec is a splendid introduction to this grape variety. The nose is redolent of wild black cherry leading to an elegant, ripe wine with gobs of flavor and 1-2 years of aging potential. Drink this hedonistic effort through 2015.
Superstar winemaker Paul Hobbs' 2002 Argentinian efforts are drawing worldwide praise. Blockbuster Malbec. New World style with heavily extracted color and fruit - a first-rate vintage for Argentina. A hedonistic wine that holds together all its burly blackberry fruits on firm tannins. Subtle anise and dried herb flavors add intrigue and complexity to the palate. Superb wine.
Lush and ripe, with lots of blackberry and boysenberry fruit gliding along suave mocha and spice notes. Creamy finish. Drink now through 2007.
The 2006 El Felino Malbec spent 9 months in French and American oak, 21% new. It is opaque purple in color with a complex nose of spice box, mulberry, and black cherry. This leads to a smoothly-textured, full-bodied wine with layers of plum and black raspberry flavor, good structure, and excellent length. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 6 years. It is a sensational value in high quality Malbec.
Bright medium ruby. Blackberry and spice on the nose, plus hints of meat and leather. Juicy, fruit-driven and on the lean side; not a fleshy wine but fresh, lively and pure. Offers an attractive light touch - and not at all short on the finish.
A polished red, offering a ripe mix of black and red wild berries that are tightly framed by nuances of violet, flint and baking spices, as the fruit pushes its way through grippy tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 641 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2009 Vina Cobos Bramare Malbec Lujan de Cuyo 750ml
Quite ripe, with plum sauce and blackberry jam notes woven with sweet licorice and spice. Sweet fruit hangs on the finish. A bit obvious, but will have some fans. Drink now.
