Bramare Valle de Uco Malbec 2017
The adjustments that the Viña Cobos team have been making recently are paying off. Having spent 18 months in mostly French oak, a quarter of it new, this Malbec from the Uco Valley is bright purple in the glass, with a nose of violet, blackberry and camphor in addition to secondary notes of sour cherry and cedar. A complex, classical wine that unfolds in layers, delivering just the right amount of heft, moderate acidity and fine tannins that bring juiciness to the palate. Sheer balance.
Burnished red, with fine texture to cherry tart and dried cherry flavors that are well-structured. Cedar and sandalwood notes on the plush, creamy finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,200 cases imported.
