“When I think of Mendoza, the first thing that comes to mind is the word diversity. We have a privileged terroir that offers endless soil profiles that are also influenced by altitude, up to 1600 meters above sea level. We can produce many varietals and there are no limits when making a wine, so the creativity of winemakers can flow freely”.
Andres Vignoni (winemaker, Viña Cobos)
Well, he has gone and done it again. For the third time, Andres ‘Mono’ Vignoni and his Cobos Malbec 2019 obtains the perfect score. “I have to ask myself if Cobos Malbec is the best wine in Argentina. I have rated now three vintages, including 2019, at 100 points in the last decade, making it the highest rated wine from Argentina” said Mr Suckling who started rating Argentine wines as far back as December 2010.
Cobos Malbec is today the second ‘most expensive wine’ in Argentina (..after Estiba Reservada of course). The 2019 vintage will be release in September of this year 2022. The wine was aged for 18 months in new Taransaud (French) oak and then bottled both unfined & unfiltered.
2019 Viña Cobos, Cobos Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina
It has a deep violet red colour with black tones. In nose, it is complex, combining black fruit, spices and graphite. With highlights of blue fruits and Andean herbs such as jarilla and wild thyme. In the mouth it presents an elegant entrance, with tannins, velvety and long finish. 100/100pts J.S.
In our LCB Eton Park cellars we have back vintages 2006 – 2011 + should you have interest.
Also, there are a few (eleven I believe) magnums of the very rare 2011 Viña Cobos (100/100pts) in original wooden cases/individual, and in stock!
