Winemaker Notes

Red ruby color with dark violet hues. The nose is marked by wild herbs and oral notes, ripe black fruit and subtle hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Is voluptuous and structured. It concludes with a pleasant and persistent finish.

JS 94
James Suckling
A tight and focused red with dried berry, chocolate and spice character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a smoky, berry aftertaste. Rich finish. Drink now.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Bramare Malbec Marchiori Vineyard was produced with fruit from a 50+-year-old vineyard in Perdriel, in the classical Luján de Cuyo district of Mendoza. It was produced and aged in a similar fashion as the rest of the Bramare single vineyard wines, aged in a majority of new oak to complete 19 months after the harvest. Ripe, round and lush, this is a textbook example of a ripe Malbec from Luján. There is also a lactic touch here, and some spicy oak and decayed violets that make it quite showy. This is ideal for one of those winter days when you feel like a big wine with hearty food. Power and balance. 11,500 bottles produced. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered in November 2015.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A dense, rich and juicy red, redolent of dark plum, violet and raspberry flavors, supported by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Cocoa powder and Asian spice notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Vina Cobos, Mendoza, Argentina

The wines of Vina Cobos are the result of a shared dream inspired by the passion of three winemakers: Paul Hobbs and Argentine parters Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud. Their founding aspiration: to produce a Malbec of power and elegance unequalled anywhere in the world. The inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec received the highest score upon release for any Argentine wine and continues to garner some of the highest praise for any Malbec in the world. Through the years, Vina Cobos has expanded their family of wines, which continue to receive even greater accolades. Cobos, Bramare and Felino offer three tiers of exceptional Chardonnay, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, sourced from the estate Marchiori Vineyard and other select properties within Mendoza.

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

Perfect Parings

Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
