Violet red with black tones. An attractive nose with aromas of fresh black fruits and prunes. e palate displays good concentration, balance and sweet yet supple tannins.

Aromas of black coffee, lemony oak, blackberry and baking spices amount to a dark and toasty whole. This Malbec from a concentrated small-crop vintage is rambling and rough on the palate, but full of lusty fruit. Black-plum, raspberry and cocoa flavors finish with lushness on a full but scratchy finish. Drink through 2025.

I also tasted the just-bottled 2017 Felino Malbec, of which a whopping 651,000 bottles have been produced. They increased the percentage of French oak and reduced the use of American oak a bit, and the wood seems better integrated, neatly folded into the fruit. It felt a little closed (it was just bottled), and I sensed the difference between the cooler 2016 and the riper 2017, but the wine didn't show any excess and felt very balanced and harmonious. At the same time, they are also changing the image, with a cleaner, easier to read label that also reflects the character of the wine. It has very fine tannins and a great mouthfeel. Amazing quality for the volume. It slowly opened up in the glass and didn't stop to grow. In the long run, I think this will be even better than the 2016.

Healthy dark red. Slightly syrupy aromas of blackberry, red cherry, licorice and spices. Sweet, pliant and easygoing, showing moderate concentration but a satisfyingly plump, mouthfilling texture. A bit medicinal in a black cherry and menthol way but also conveys sexy sweetness and the tannins avoid coming off as dry. Finish

Svelte and juicy, with red plum and raspberry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. Notes of green olive and hints of tar show on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2021.
