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

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.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

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.

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.
