Vina Cobos Bramare Chanares Estate 2017
Deep purple red with black tones. Spiced and mineral character. Scents of blue fruits and figs mixed with spiced notes. Aromas reminiscent of cinnamon, cloves, wild thyme, and fresh tobacco. On the palate, it shows intensity and energy, with muscular and textural tannins.

The focus to this polished red is gorgeous with floral aromas coloring the blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied, yet the tight, polished tannins give a sense of levity and refinement.
Vibrant, refined and filled with unctuous dark plum, blackberry and dark currant supported by velvety tannins. Cooking spices notes are deeply ingrained, with a long, lilting finish that is filled with cream and dark chocolate accents.
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.
With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.
Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
