Overview of the Wine
Viña Cobos makes wines that are authentic expressions of the terroir from which they come. Paul Hobbs, founding partner and winemaker at Viña Cobos, has worked since 1988 in the exploration of the different terroirs of Mendoza, looking for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and the Valle de Uco, to produce wines that uniquely express their origins.

Sustainable farming methods in the vineyard contribute to consistent yields of healthy fruit. In the winery, careful treatment of the grapes and meticulous winemaking techniques result in complex and elegant wines of subtlety and balance.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The 2019 Cabernet Franc Chanares Estate from Los Arboles, Uco Valley, was 50% aged in new barrels. Purple in color. The clean, delicate perfumed nose presents remarkably intense notes of sour cherry, ash and blackcurrant enchanced by a layer of mint and aromas from the aging process. Indulgent and expansive, the energy builds in the mouth, sculpting a palate of balanced freshness the enlivens the extremely finely grained tannins. The flavors are a precise combination of oak and just the right degree of ripe fruit.

98 Points - James Suckling
Purple fruit with black licorice, white pepper and cloves. Full-bodied with layers of chewy and polished tannins and a great finish. Sage undertones to the minerals. Chalky and structured. Great finish. Needs three or four years of bottle age. Give it time to soften

Product size: 750ml
