I’ve always enjoyed the wines of Viña Cobos, which is Paul Hobbs Argentina venture and partnership with Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud. Their entry level offerings are done under the Felino label and are sourced from selected vineyards in Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo in Mendoza. Purple flowers and incense hover around the core of blackberry, licorice, ganache, and vanilla. This has crowdpleaser written all over it. Shockingly good for the price.

A young and ripe Cabernet that provides a long finish. Expect cherries, cedar, and some menthol.

Not for me, not my style. Spiciness lingers when it hasn't belonged in the first place. Very Malbec-esque

Strong blackcurrant notes. Wife loved it (didn't find it overwhelming for a cab sav, had a smooth finish); hubby wasn't keen (felt it was too smokey)
