From highly acclaimed and sought-after winemaker Paul Hobbs, and his partners, we bring you this Vina Cobos Felino Cabernet Sauvignon. It is dense, layered, and beautifully balanced - in other words, your newest weeknight and weekend full-bodied red. At this price, it's definitely a buy-by-the-case deal. Open your first enticing bottle and get acquainted with this gorgeous Vina Cobos while you feast on tiny rib lamb chops with a minted vinegar dipping sauce. Mágicamente delicioso! As for the entree, the spice and dark fruit, ripe tannins, earthy nuances and strong presence of this Felino make it a natural with beef, lamb and game, especially if they're done on the grill. The tannins will score a 10 each time when paired with your favorite steak grilled to perfection. A little more effort will have a crowd oohing and ahhing if you prepare a rub of lavender buds, fennel seeds, black and white peppercorns and dried thyme, and use it on a whole beef tenderloin oven-roasted to medium rare doneness. Serve it alongside a potato-leek ragout. Bring out its earthiness with a slow-roasted duck with olive gravy and a garlic-fennel confit. The delight in the room will be palpable... If casual is what you're craving, a hearty platter of spaghetti bolognaise is another wonderful option with this Hobbs Cabernet. Clear the dishes and catch your breath. You will be looking for reasons to open another bottle, and we have it: a room temperature, potent Gorgonzola cheese with toasted slices of walnut bread is the perfect excuse. Make sure you're generous when filling those glasses winelovers!
Winery: "Spicy and fruity character outstands. The intense ruby red color anticipates a complex, appealing wine. On the nose, the freshness of the red fruit and the herbal notes like freshly cut grass complements the spicy notes of black pepper, clove and cinnamon, as well cedar and tobacco. Great freshness on the palate, good acidity, sweet tannins and great intensity for a very well-integrated wine with a persistent finish."
