A blockbuster Malbec that maintains great balance. Very expressive on the nose, displaying georgous notes of violet flowers and shortbread. On the palate, it carries vibrant flavours of blueberry, boysenberry, jam and a precise note of black cherry pie, with chewy, ripe tannins. The fresh finish introduces pleasant spice notes mingling with the fruit.
A superb steak wine.
"A really rich, chocolatey, velvety wine from one of Argentina’s leading producers. Viña Cobos really focus on sustainable practices and you can really taste the care and attention to detail in this delicious wine."
In 1989, Paul Hobbs visited Mendoza for the first time. Driving over the Andes from Chile with his longstanding friend Jorge Catena, brother of the famous Nicolas Catena, he fell in love with the place, the people, but also with the potential to make great wine. In an exploration of the different terroirs across Mendoza Paul looks for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco to produce wines that uniquely express their origins. The winery’s elegant and balanced wines are a result of meticulous vineyard farming and utmost respect for terroir.
Viña Cobos' winemaking philosophy is to produce wines with natural practices, assuring that in each step the vines and wines are treated with utmost care. We encourage and pursue fermentation with indigenous yeast and prefer to bottle their wines unfiltered and unfined in order to retain their full body and persistent finish.
