Viña Cobos Cocodrilo Corte 2014
|Appellation||Alto Vale de Uco|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cocodrilo Corte is a blend ("corte" is the word used in Argentina to denote blends) of Cabernet Sauvignon with 14% Cabernet Franc and some 9% Malbec and it also mixes origins, as it contains fruit from Valle de Uco, Maipú and Luán de Cuyo in similar proportions. It fermented in stainless steel tanks followed by malolactic and aging in oak to complete an élevage of 15 months, with some 20% of the barrels new and made of American oak. Tasting this side by side with the 2015, you clearly notice a riper and warmer vintage in 2014, with plumier notes, an herbal touch and nicely integrated spices. The palate is round, lush and sleek, with fine-grained, plumpy tannins. 42,000 bottles produced.
