Winemaker Notes

This bright deep-red wine with purplish sparkles displays a delicate aroma of ripe red fruits and violets, which cover the palate with notes of graphite, chocolate, caramel and coconut. Its pure characteristics and round tannins give this Malbec a marked structure and concentration that linger into an elegant and fine finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Very intense aromas of blackberry, coffee bean, blue slate and dried flowers. Full body, refined texture with sexy fruit. Fabulous length. This caresses every inch of your palate. Drink now or hold.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Notes of floral, mineral and baking spices accent the creamy dark cherry puree and macerated plum flavors in this concentrated version, with a smoky finish of fruit and mocha. Drink now through 2020.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Bramare Malbec Rebon Vineyard is sourced from a single vineyard in La Consulta at 1,015 meters above sea level from eight-year-old plots belonging to Adriana Rebon. After a 27-day total maceration it was aged for 18 months in (mostly) French and American oak barrels, 67% new. It was bottled unfiltered and unfined in January 2013. The wine feels like the big brother of the Bramare from Uco (which it is!) with a nose of violet, ripe black and blue berries intermixed with sweet spices. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals sweet tannins, good freshness and balance between tannins and acidity. It is very approachable, and slightly simpler than the Marchiori Vineyard. Drink 2015-2021.

Vina Cobos, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Image of winery
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.

Uco Valley

View all wine

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation, and well-draining soil, 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.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay also perform well here.

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 but was susceptible to viticultural problems. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it did flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 by a French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, but did not gain its current reputation as the national grape of Argentina until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century thanks to its easy-going drinkability.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of freshly turned earth, black fruits from berries to plums, and licorice, appropriately backed by dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, it can be quite intense and often needs time to mellow before becoming drinkable. In the Old World, its rusticity shines, with aged examples showing dusty notes of leather and tobacco. The best examples in all regions often possess a beguiling bouquet of violets.

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.
