VINA COBOS BRAMARE MALBEC MARCHIORI VINEYARD LUJAN DE CUYO
Luis Gutierrez for eRobertParker.com: 93/100
The 2014 Bramare Malbec Marchiori Vineyard was produced with fruit from a 50+-year-old vineyard in Perdriel, in the classical Luján de Cuyo district of Mendoza. It was produced and aged in a similar fashion as the rest of the Bramare single vineyard wines, aged in a majority of new oak to complete 19 months after the harvest. Ripe, round and lush, this is a textbook example of a ripe Malbec from Luján. There is also a lactic touch here, and some spicy oak and decayed violets that make it quite showy. This is ideal for one of those winter days when you feel like a big wine with hearty food. Power and balance. 11,500 bottles produced. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered in November 2015.
