2015 Vina Cobos Felino Cocodrilo Red Blend Mendoza image

(91 Points) I also tasted the 2015 Cocodrilo Corte, which is a different blend every year, although always Cabernet Sauvignon-based, which in 2015 was complemented by 15% Malbec and 8% Cabernet Franc. The origin of the grapes also changes, and here it's mostly fruit from Luján with about 23% of it sourced from the cooler Valle de Uco. The wine matured in oak barrels, 20% of them new, until bottled some 15 months after the harvest. I always like tasting different vintages of the same wine side by side, as comparison accentuates differences and nuances. This is much fresher than the 2014, with subtle aromas and good nuances, quite fruit-driven with a spicy touch. The palate is medium-bodied, polished, easy to drink, with very good freshness. I see a turn toward fresher wine, which is shown very clearly when comparing this next to the 2014.  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
