Cobos - Malbec 2007Perdriel Mendoza Fine Wine
Saturated violet/onyx colour and heady aromas of blackberry and anise introduce a muscular malbec of regal structure and weight.
The silky, mouthcoating palate reveals hints of black plum, bittersweet cocoa and espresso emerging from the elegant weave of tannins that envelop the fruit like a velvet glove.
Hints of white pepper and minerals add complexity as fine grain tannins persist over a memorable finish.
A mild winter with minimal frost was followed by warm, consistent temperatures in spring that set a healthy, uniform crop.
A long, moderate growing season followed, allowing fruit to ripen slowly and fully. Rains in mid-March necessitated the delay of harvest to give the vines time to shed the excess moisture and reconcentrate flavours in the berries.
