Viña Cobos is the inspired vision of Paul Hobbs, a pioneer who began exploring vineyard sites in Mendoza 30 years ago. All of Viña Cobos’ wines are crafted through meticulous work in the vineyards and winery, so that year-after-year the wines faithfully express the essence of each variety and terroir. The Bramare Vineyard Designate line captures the richness and power of exceptional vineyards and estates within Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo. The limited production, single vineyard wines are rooted in their origins: unique and renowned sites such as La Consulta, Villa Bastías, Perdriel or Las Compuertas.

Growing Conditions

This lot has very deep soils, with predominance of loam and clay texture. there is also sand, improving significantly the drainage. Smaller size stones are surrounded with gravel, and slightly carbonated; they appear below the 3.28 feet.

Winter began dry, without major weather events. Spring presented very good thermal amplitude. Between November and December some hail occurred with no damage reported. By the time of blooming, climate conditions were very good; growers could successfully complete their cycle. All varieties showed great balance and intensity; elegance, purity and clarity in the fruit, with ripe tannins.

Aging

Aging for 18 months in new French oak (65%) in combination with second use oak (35%).

Bottling

Bottled in November 2014. Unfined and unfiltered.

Nose

On the nose we find the freshness of the red fruit and cassis, accompanied by notes of tobacco,chocolate and spices. We also find black pepper, clove, mocha, graphite and hints of gunpowder.

Palate

It is an unctuous wine with marked tannins. We find aromas of ink and great fruit in a long and complex finish.
