Viña-Cobos Bramare Malbec 2014
Dense mossy aromas of blackberry are slightly murky. Forget about delicacy on the palate, this is full-bodied and clattering. Blackberry, cassis, black cherry and chocolate flavors finish spicy. This is at maximum ripeness. Drink through 2022.
A rich and lusciously spiced red, with dark cherry, dried blackberry and roasted plum flavors, accented by dark chocolate notes. Creamy midpalate, featuring a finish loaded with Asian spice and peppery details. Drink now through 2021. 1,500 cases imported.
The 2014 Bramare Luján de Cuyo Malbec is plumier and riper, and as it was produced and aged in a similar fashion as the one from Valle de Uco, I guess it just showed the character of the warmer vintage in a warmer place. The effect of the oak was more noticeable here, and overall it's a matter of preference, because the quality is similar. Today, I prefer the one from Valle de Uco. 86,400 bottles produced.
