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.
Editorial Reviews for Viña Cobos Malbec Felino
Quite subtle on the nose, though showing a sophisticated blend of nuanced, cigar box oak, crushed wild berry fruit, and hints of ivy and green herbs. Smooth, fairly zesty and even edgy in the mouth, there’s great tension and energy here with the bright crushed wild berry aromas of the nose gaining a bit of sweetness and complexity from the oak on the palate. The finish is a bit short, showing a fine steak of bitterness that helps to define the sweet, slightly jammy blackberry fruit that leads to the cranberry tinged finale. Captures the power of malbec while displaying a bit of finesse. Lovely wine. 89pts
Four and a half glasses
With dinner at Glen Ella
Compared with the Santa Julia'11 Organic Chardonnay, this was more like a Chardonnay although the oak was a little overwhelming... Other that that it was balanced and creamy
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. Knew going into 4 Flights Wine Boutique would like this one. Charlie and I both agreed. Typical Malbec with fruit and earth, little bolder and smoother than most.
External Reviews for Viña Cobos Malbec Felino
The 2012 Felino Malbec, which includes 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot, was sourced in Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and Uco Valley, something they really decide at the time of bottling. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in French and American oak barrels of which 20% are new, where the wine then ages for eight months. It has the brightest, liveliest color of the red Felinos, and starts slightly reduced, something common when Malbec has only breathed through the pores of the oak for a short time. With time and air, it starts developing some licorice and red and black fruit notes. The medium-bodied palate has fine tannins, and juicy red fruit and violet flavors, with a slightly bitter finish. Decant and enjoy! Drink now–2018.
Easy-drinking, featuring juicy notes of floral plum and spice, with cedar hints. Solid length. Drink now.

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, leather, tree bark and dark chocolate reminded me a bit of mourvedre. Juicy, moderately sweet and intense, with noteworthy verve to its intense blackberry and black cherry flavors. Finishes with lovely floral lift and suave tannins.
Medium red-ruby. Higher-pitched on the nose than the merlot offering scents of blackberry mint and violet. Juicy supple and fresh with sweet cassis and black cherry flavors leavened by nicely integrated acidity and a note of menthol. Smooth approachable cabernet with ripe tannins and good length. Nicely done. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
