About the Wine

Viña Cobos is located in Argentina’s most celebrated wine region, Mendoza. This winery is property of world-renowned winemaker, Paul Hobbs.

Paul arrived in Mendoza more than 30 years ago, and he immediately fell in love with this region. It was the terroir, the landscapes, and the potential that Mendoza had, what captured him. Paul is mostly responsible of the growth and popularity of the Argentinian Malbec. He managed to position Malbec and Argentinian wines in general as high-quality, amazing wines.  

Paul Hobbs, named as the “Steve Jobs of the wine” by Forbes magazine, is a world-renowned American winemaker who started his wine trajectory after graduating from UC Davis with a winemaking and viticulture master’s degree. He is well known for putting Napa Valley in the map. He was the right-hand of Robert Mondavi and served as the first winemaker of Opus One winery and as vice-president of Simi Winery. Today, Hobbs owns different and emblematic wineries throughout the world: Paul Hobbs Winery and Crossbarn in California, Viña Cobos in Argentina, Crocus in France and Yacoubian-Hobbs in Armenia. He’s also consults at more than 30 wineries between Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Canada, Spain, Hungary, among other countries.

Viña Cobos is completely committed to the environment. This winery uses sustainable practices in the vineyard and the cellar, allowing to have balanced and very high-quality harvests. The result is complex, subtle and extremely elegant wines.

2019 was an extraordinary year for Mendoza. Wine Advocate blessed it with a 96 point review, and Wine Spectator said that it wines showing remarkable intensity.

Aging: 18 months in new French oak barrels (20%), new American oak (10%) and combination of second use (70%)

Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense notes of blackberry, cherry, and black tea entice the nose, before hints of black pepper and smoke rise from this saturated, inky purple cabernet sauvignon. The richly textured palate brings black cherry, milk chocolate, rose petal jam and subtle clove tones supported by firm, velvety tannins.
