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.
With the inaugural vintage of Cobos Malbec in 1999, Viña Cobos marked a milestone in viticulture, defying existing standards and firmly positioned Malbec and Argentina on the international wine scene. Since then, our prestigious wines have been recognized around the globe by critics and consumers alike.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep red color with violet tones, this blend is highly concentrated with substantial body and structure. The nose displays aromas of blueberries, blackberries, chocolate, and spice. Sweet and soft tannins linger on a long finish.
94 Points - James Suckling
Focused palate with polished, integrated tannins that give a beautiful mouth feel to the wine, while framing the currant and light dark-chocolate flavors.
94 Points - Ian Blackburn
Dense, deep, delicious - this Cabernet based blend has incredible quality marks and achieves higher tier quality. Color 14/15, Aromas 23+/25, Body 23+/25, and Overall Impression is 33/35 = 94 Points - one of my favorite values of the year!
