Bramare malbec marchiori

Bramare Malbec, Marchiori Vineyard 2013

Viña Cobos by Paul Hobbs

This malbec offers a very good red color with violet tones. On the nose it expresses great complexity and thrilling minerality, showing aromas of graphite, tobacco, chocolate, red fruit and spices like clove and pepper. On the palate it is unctuous and velvety; with sweet tannins. It delights, with an agreeable sensation of sour sweet fruit, toasted sugar and bee wax. An elegant and intense wine with a very long finish.

Reviews

  • "93 points. A big, rich and powerful red that features concentrated blackberry, dark plum and raspberry tart flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. Nougat and Asian spice notes fill the creamy finish. Drink now through 2021. 270 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
  • "93 points. Bright, saturated ruby. Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, licorice and violet convey more aromatic lift and interest than the Rebón Vineyard bottling. A major step up in energy and definition on the palate too but still with noteworthy thickness of texture to the concentrated, brambly blueberry, cassis and floral flavors. A savory quality contributes juiciness. The firm but suave tannins are easily supported by the wine's strong fruit. Very long on the aftertaste. A beauty." (vinous)
