Even in the most challenging vintages (2015), Cobos always produces at least one stellar wine, and this is it. A pitch-black color and ripe extracted aromas of dried cheese, prune, blackberry and char lead to a huge palate with soft tannins and bold acidity. Charred blackberry, coffee and grilled steak flavors end in darkness on the finish. Drink through 2028.

The 2015 Bramare Malbec Chañares Estate is from their new flagship vineyard in Los Árboles in the Tunuyán department of the Valle de Uco. This is a new bottling from two specific blocks within this estate vineyard. The blocks are planted with a clonal selection from Luján de Cuyo, and they have also planted some plots with material from their other older vines. The wine has some notes of aromatic plants and flowers, nice Malbec typicity and moderate ripeness. Considering they still used 65% new French barriques in 2015 and the wine matured in barrel for 18 months, the oak is integrated and provides spicy, smoky and balsamic aromas with hints of incense and cigar ash that tend to standardize aromas and flavors. It's still energetic and young. 9,960 bottles produced.

Saturated ruby. Very primary nose dominated by a stony quality. Highly concentrated and extremely primary, offering flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violet, licorice, wild herbs and lightly fusel crushed rock (Vignoni described this note as "water on hot rocks"). Finishes with an impression of medicinal reserve and slowly building length. This juicy but youthfully imploded wine, which carries a relatively low pH of 3.4, finishes firmly tannic and needs time to expand in the bottle. There's no easy sweetness here.

Concentrated red fruit and dried herb flavors are vibrant and focused in this lip-smacking red. Red licorice and hot spice notes fill the crisp, focused finish. Drink now through 2022. 830 cases made.

Varietal: Malbec

Malbec grapes have a beautiful deep and dusty purple color, and can now be found growing in abundance in many different countries. They thrive most successfully in hot, dry southern climates, a long way from their home in native France. However, whilst many Old World wineries had and continue to have a lot of success with this flavorful grape, its susceptibility to rot and weakness against cold and damp meant that its usage began to dwindle in the countries such as France whilst it grew in the New. Malbec's thick skins lend it strong tannins, something which allows the wines produced from these grapes to hold their distinctive, astringent and full-bodied character. They also tend to be packed full of plummy, fleshy fruit-forward flavors, making them an interesting and complex grape for single variety wines, as well as an ideal grape for blending and aging.

Region: Cuyo

Undoubtedly the most important viticultural region of the country of Argentina is Cuyo, the arid and red-soiled area within central-west Argentina which produces over eighty percent of the nation's wine each year. Cuyo represents the finest aspects of Argentinian wine making, with wineries in the region celebrating their traditions which stretch back to the sacramental wines first introduced to the country by Spanish settlers hundreds of years ago. As with much of Argentina, Cuyo is most famous for the production of Malbec wines, with Malbec grapes thriving prodigiously in the hot climate of the region, reaching full ripeness in ways they rarely could in their native France, and producing wines of exceptional flavor and quality. The Desaguadero River is the key water source in this otherwise dry and dusty region, and successful irrigation projects have helped bring water to even the driest vineyards within Cuyo.

Country: Argentina

In the dry, arid deserts of Argentina, wineries and winemakers are focusing their efforts on producing high quality wines for the world market. By experimenting with both traditional and modern methods and technologies, they have found great success with a wide variety of grapes well suited to the conditions of the country, particularly Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the past decade, Argentinian wineries have continued to aim high, and this has led to a range of new wines using grape varietals not typically associated with the country. The cooler regions of Argentina are seeing more vineyards being planted with Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir varietals, something that is beginning to produce fantastic results, which are at once representative of the country's wines - with all their fruity and bold character - but are also pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a New World country.
