“Plenty of blue fruit and violets with some black licorice and hints of asphalt. Medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and linear, firm tannins that frame the wine. Very fine texture. Real.” 93 points, James Suckling

In 1989, Paul Hobbs visited Mendoza for the first time. Driving over the Andes from Chile with his longstanding friend Jorge Catena, brother of the famous Nicolas Catena, he fell in love with the place, the people, but also with the potential to make great wine.
He began experimenting with wild fermented Chardonnay and then with the variety that would become Argentina’s calling card – Malbec. His first 10 barrel vintage of Malbec persuaded the American press of the potential of this grape. Paul established his own winery, Viña Cobos, in 1999 and 20 years later, Paul continues to makes wines that are authentic expressions of the terroir from which they come. In an exploration of the different terroirs across Mendoza Paul looks for the most distinguished regions in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco to produce wines that uniquely express their origins. The winery’s elegant and balanced wines are a result of meticulous vineyard farming and utmost respect for terroir.
An expression of the best vineyard sites Valle de Uco has to offer, located at the foot of the Andes between 900 and 1400m above sea-level. Concentrated and robust, yet elegant and seductive, this is an outstanding Malbec with vigour and persistence.
“Incredibly floral and aromatic with crushed raspberries and violets. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. This is really vivid and clear on the palate.” 94 points, James Suckling
