“The excellent vintage shows through here with violets and crushed raspberries. Extremely aromatic. Medium to full body, fine yet light tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now.”~J.S.
“Bright and deep purple color. Aromas of black fruit reminiscent of fresh plum mixed with graphite notes. On the palate the wine is balanced and energetic, with sweet and round tannins and long finish.”-Winemaker Notes
“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.”-Winery Notes

Since the release of the inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec, which is recognized for receiving the highest score to date for any Argentine wine, Viña Cobos has developed an expansive portfolio of ultra-premium wines that continues to grow today. Founders Andrea Marchiori, Luis Barraud and Paul Hobbs established this winery with the shared vision of producing an exquisite selection of Argentine wine that would receive international recognition and appreciation. Paul's first exposure to Argentina sparked an immediate interest and intrigue – one that fueled his desire to delve further into its rich culture and explore the varietal growing potential of its terroir. This, combined with Andrea and Luis' Mendozan roots and viticulture heritage, allowed for all three of them to not only achieve their dreams, but exceed them. With the four vineyards of Zingaretti, Rebon, Touza and Marchiori scattered throughout Mendoza's Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, Viña Cobos boasts decades of prosperity and hints at a similar future – a direct product of the founders' ceaseless and careful commitment to the winery and consumer's experience.
