More information on wine critics and ratings

The Cobos Chañares is a highly expressive, exquisite and full-bodied malbec from Valle de Uco. It has a well-defined red ruby color with dark violet hues and presents aromas of wild herbs like thyme and rosemary, chamomile, violets, ripe black fruits, cassis and subtle hints of vanilla.

The mouthfeel of this vibrant wine presents velvety tannins that continue to evolve and end in a pleasant and persistent finish.

After visiting Argentina in 1989, Californian trail blazer Paul Hobbs became deeply interested in both the terroir and Argentine culture, noticing the unique potential for Malbec and other varietals in the region. After meeting two kindred spirits, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud, they founded Viña Cobos in 1997 and since then there has been no looking back. Utilizing gnarly old vines, careful vineyard selection, very low yields and an unerring empathy for the raw materials,… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 96 Points (2015)
Now the top of the range, the 2015 Cobos Malbec Chañares Estate is produced with grapes grown in their young vineyard in Los Árboles in Tunuyán. This comes from the oldest plot in the vineyard, a block that was already planted when they bought the estate. These vines were planted in 2007, yet the wine has remarkable complexity and depth for such young vines. This is a wine that marks a new era in the Viña Cobos history, with more weight from the Valle de Uco and less intervention in the winery, and it has more freshness and transparency and less new oak. In this second vintage, they also reduced the number of new barrels used for the élevage to 85% (and it might be lower in the future), which I believe helps to preserve the character of the wine. Even if it's generously oaked, it feels quite serious and balanced, without any sweetness. It has a dry palate with fine-grained, elegant tannins and a long, tasty, somewhat mineral finish. It should develop nicely in bottle. 3,840 bottles produced.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2013)
Suave and well-integrated, this shows hot stone notes to the savory red berry and bramble flavors, with roast beef details emerging midpalate. The finish offers sandalwood and spice accents. Drink now through 2020.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 95 Points (2010)
Price aside, this is absolutely wonderful Malbec. The nose is pure and toasty, with minerally dark-berry aromas, cola and pastry notes. The palate is so rich and smooth it's like liquid heaven, while flavors of polished blackberry, espresso and mocha pudding finish mellow as can be, like a silk robe coated in Swiss chocolate. Drink through 2016; 170 cases made.

Bramare Malbec from the Marchiori Vineyard exhibits is a deep-red purplish colour, with a sweet and fruity aroma. Exquisite flavours of red and black berries, tobacco and liquorice invade the mouth. Sweet tannins and an outstanding volume give complexity and structure, leading to a long and intense aftertaste.
