"The 2007 Bramare Chardonnay has more obvious oak in light of the fact that it was aged in 50% new French barrels for 11 months. The nose also reveals tropical fruits, vanilla, white peach, and mineral notes. Plush on the palate, it has superior depth, layered flavors, and outstanding length. Drink it over the next four years. (12/08)" 92 points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"Rich and showy, but nicely detailed, with grilled hazelnut and brioche notes weaving through the plump apple, pear and fig flavors. Long and juicy on the finish. Drink now. 443 cases made." -91 points Wine Spectator
"Opalescent pale straw color introduces a big, bold, opulent chardonnay, fragrant with ripe, freshly cut pear, Fuji apple and white nectarine. Viscosity and structure define a palate bursting with layered flavors of ripe tropical fruit, lemon meringue, vanillin and dulce de leche that persist through the citrusy notes on the long, spicy finish."
"Bramare is an Italian word meaning 'to yearn for' and represents Vina Cobos's middle tier of wines. Under the Bramare label, Vina Cobos produces both Appellation and Vineyard Designate wines showcasing Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay."
"Bramare Vineyard Designate wines investigate the unique terroir of certain blocks within the Marchiori Vineyard in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo and the Rebon Vineyard in La Consulta, Valle de Uco. These are wines of great structure, concentration and complexity." -Importer
"Owners: Andrea Marchiori, Luis Barraud, Paul Hobbs. The wines of Vina Cobos are the result of a shared dream inspired by the passion of an American winemaker and two partners from a wine-producing culture deeply rooted in European traditions. Their founding aspiration: to produce a malbec of power and elegance unequalled anywhere in the world. The inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec received the highest score upon release for any Argentine wine. Since then, Paul and partners have grown their family of wines, which continue to receive even greater accolades. Cobos, Bramare and Felino offer three tiers of exceptional chardonnay, merlot, malbec and cabernet sauvignon sourced from Marchiori Vineyard and other select properties within Mendoza." -Importer
