Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2002 Cobos Malbec Marchiori Vineyard was picked the morning after a heavy rain flooded the vineyard but it was nonetheless a great growing season. The wine is a glass-coating purple in color, thick and rich in appearance. The aromatic array includes smoke, mineral, violets, plums, blackberry, and black cherry along with a slight baked character that was also present in a second bottle. On the palate the wine exudes power in its layered, opulent personality. Attractive spice notes emerge along with hints of espresso and chocolate. The lengthy finish is loaded with fruit and the wine’s superb balance suggests at least a decade of further evolution and a drinking window that should remain open through 2035.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
This shows awesome purity, with lush, seamless layers of raspberry, blackberry and fig compote finely stitched with notes of plum sauce, mocha, graphite and violets. Velvety texture and fresh acidity let the decadent finish display exotic combinations of flavors. A memory-staining wine. Drink now through 2009. 726 cases made.

Vina Cobos The Winery in Mendoza Winery Image

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.

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.

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.
