2008 Felino Malbec

The 2008 Vina Cobos Felino Malbec, Mendoza is an exceptional wine. The deep blueberry and cakespice aromas and flavors are reminiscent of a nice Cabernet from Napa's Stag's Leap District. Black pepper and roasted coffee bean play a supporting role. Balance is provided by the nice tannins and acidity that hits you on the sides of the tongue. I would expect no less from the genius of Paul Hobbs. Worth every penny of $20.
