Viña Cobos Cocodrilo Corte - Argentina - 2015
4.5

The 2014 vintage came in at 3.5 stars (review here), but this 2015 bottle touches the sky at just under a full cinco. Good lord this cab/malbec blend is fantastic. Was served ever so slightly chilled and then left to sit in a decanter for an hour before drinking. Flavors were intense as a result: black cherry really comes through here. Less smoky than earlier vintages but makes up for it by showing more robust flavor. Tannins are too subdued and mouthfeel is just slightly lacking, keeping this from a full five stars.
