Viña Cobos Malbec Felino 2010
Our most sophisticated Felino malbec yet carries a deep magenta hue and aromas of dark berries and anise. On the palate, intense, pure flavors of just-picked 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.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Not much bouquet, though what’s there is in keeping with the usual acrid malbec aromas. The flavor is bright and light, making for an easy-drinking wine with an attractive, lasting finish that exceeds expectations. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=464)
Very nice, smooth, bold Malbec. Exactly what you'd expect. $15.45 VW
Paul Hobbs, Malbec. Actually, I knew going into the 4 Flights Wine Boutique tasting would like this one. Charlie and I both agreed (rare for us). Bold flavors, fruit and earth, but not overpowering and smoother than some Malbecs.

A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2010 Vina Cobos Malbec El Felino 750ml
Bright ruby-red. Ripe but not overripe aromas of blackberry, espresso and licorice. At once dense and suave, with surprisingly verve and shape to the rich flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Fine-grained, concentrated, cleanly made malbec, finishing with smooth tannins and persistent flavors of blackberry, black cherry and menthol. A very good showing this year for these Felino wines.
