Viña Cobos Cocodrilo Corte 2020
|Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo
The 2020 Corte Cocodrilo is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 14% Malbec, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot from the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, and was aged in 13% new French barrels. Garnet red in hue. The balsamic nose features bay leaf and thyme with blackcurrant notes and a hint of ash over cedar aromas. Relatively free-flowing in the mouth with a juicy, taut feel, the texture comes from the wood and the flavor from the wine. The alcoholic energy from the warm year is well-balanced.
This medium-bodied red is ripe but polished, with baking spice and chocolate notes to the fig and black cherry core, ending with a note of graphite and suave tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now.
