Region: Mendoza, Argentina
“The wines of Viña 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, owners Andrea Marchiori, Luis Barraud, and Paul Hobbs. 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.
Dense garnet color accompanies an earthy nose, rich with aromas of cassis, mocha and lavender. The palate is bold and complex, weaving black currant and boysenberry with graphite and sweet tobacco. Ripe tannins and subtle minerality find perfect balance over a lengthy finish.”
