A little insider’s tip: If you love the polish and pedigree of the the internationally acclaimed Paul Hobbs’ California wines, Viña Cobos is his Argentinian passion project. These wines over-deliver at every price point and should not be missed.
100% Malbec grown in prime vineyards in the Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo which are situated at an incredible 700-1070 metres above sea level. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks then aged in American oak barrels, a small proportion of which are new, for 9 months.
The wine is a deep violet red with black tones. It displays an attractive nose with aromas of fresh black fruits and prunes. The palate displays good concentration and balance, with sweet yet supple tannins. Pair with a flank steak and chimichurri sauce.
“The 2022 Malbec Felino is 55% from the Uco Valley and 45% from Lujan de Cuyo. Only 7% of the wine was aged for up to six months in barrels. The 2022 has a rich, purple hue. The nose features dark and red fruit, including blackberry, plus and floral and jammy notes. The palate is creamy and expensive, with a juicy, fresh character and plenty of flavors before the lasting, plush, fruity finish.” 91 points, Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous Media, June 2023
