Viña Cobos Chañares Estate Cabernet Franc "Los Arboles" 2018
Deep in color, with violet and black tones. On the nose, aromas of black tea, red bell pepper, and blueberries as well as cigar box notes. On the palate it shows freshness, fine tannins and minerality. 100% Cabernet Franc
The 2018 Cabernet Franc Vina Cobos Chanares was aged for 18 months in 54% new barrels. Garnet red with a violet sheen, the nose offers herbs, blackberry, amaretti and a little ash with secondary aromas of pyrazines and balsam. This is a pure wine in which the terse feel is almost chalky, and the finely grained tannins merge with the freshness to up the energy. An accomplished red that will grow more profound with time.
