Got a taste from my favorite bartender. Deep red with dark fruit aromas with usual Malbec. On the palate blackberry fruit with heavy big powerful cedar oak and spice. Big tannins, medium length ending with plenty of spice. Just ok for price.

For World Malbec Day. A little Paul Hobbs Felino Vina Cobos. Perfect with our cheeseburgers on the grill tonight. Cheers!

Medium plus body with dark fruit notes. Smooth and easy to drink. Worth the price.

Vanilla, rich plum, black pepper on the back end. Modest tannins, really nice mouthfeel but not very complex. Stagecoach's baby brother. Seems like a pretty good value at $15 though. If I spotted this on a menu is order it again.

The Felino Malbec is a full bodied deep colored and a bold presence of berry, acidity and tannins that satisfy and linger on the finish. Paired nicely with applewood smoked sirloin cooked in a Kamaro cooker. This Malbec will work as a Conversation wine or with grilled meats.

What is going on here? Paul Hobbs making top notch, inexpensive Malbec in Mendoza?!? Dark fruit with great acidic balance and very approachable tannin. Not my typical preference, but this is very well made for under $20. Recommend some air time.
