Viña Cobos Felino Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016


Vina Cobos Felino Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016

First, the 92 points are from James Suckling.  Not sure why, but I’m never on the same page as Suckling (or, put another way, “who cares about the points?”).  So that wasn’t the draw.  But the price was a draw; $28 reduced to $24.  Yes and yes.  And in the end, a lovely purchase.  Medium for a Cab Sauv, it wasn’t even really majestic with red meat in that Ridge Caymus Jordan way, that left jab right hook in the style of the California heavyweights.  And at 13.5%, how wonderful to be so wonderful.  Dark fruits/fruitcake fruits, charcoal chocolate, and then some tannins to make you pucker.  A great sipper.

 

Price: $24 at Everything Wine.  (By the way, their Malbec reviewed here was a non-starter for us.)

 

Market Liquidity: Value, verbatim.
