Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red color with dark violet hues. The nose displays cassis, juicy red plums and bramble, with hints of cardamom and tobacco. The palate has broad structure and lush tannins with a persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
A complex wine with blue and red fruits. Blueberries and strawberries. Some peaches, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered tannins, which give the wine form and different levels. Drink or hold.
TA 97
Is one of Argentina’s most celebrated icon wines undergoing a slight shift in style? It’s still a very rich, inky, concentrated wine, with 100% new oak, powerful dark berry and chocolate fruit and layered tannins, but the acidity is a little brighter, the picking slightly earlier, the balance more assured. 2020-30
RP 92
2015 was not an easy harvest in Luján de Cuyo, where the grapes for the 2015 Bramare Malbec Marchiori Estate grow. It comes through as ripe and a little heady, with notes of plums and dark cherries and an earthy and spicy touch. There are balsamic aromas reminiscent of cigar ash and incense with a touch of graphite and licorice. It has a full-bodied palate, with grainy, slightly dusty tannins. This comes from a different block than the Cobos, and there are slightly younger vines with less stony soils. Here the wine matured in 65% new French barriques for 18 months.

Vina Cobos, South America

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. Tee 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.

Mendoza

View all products

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.

Malbec

View all products

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originated 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.
