Professional Wine Reviews for Vina Cobos Cocodrilo Corte Red Blend 2013

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The word "corte" is used to say blend in Argentina, so the 2013 Cocodrilo Corte is obviously a blend. This blend can change with the vintage and in this second year of the label it's mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% each Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. It has a smoky, balsamic nose with the herbal aromas of the Bordeaux grapes, notes of cigar ash and also ripe berries with some air-dried meat. The medium to full-bodied palate is quite compact and has very polished tannins. This wine is barrel-aged for 15 months with 20% new American oak barrels. 23,580 bottles produced.

Winery Vina Cobos

Region: Cuyo

Situated in and around the Andean mountains, the Cuyo region of Argentina has long been associated with the best of the country's wine industry. Including now world famous provinces such as Mendoza and La Rioja, Argentina's Cuyo region has something of an ideal environment for the cultivation of high quality grapes – including Argentina's flagship varietal, the Malbec – which includes the beautiful Desaguadero River and its tributaries. Although the region itself is quite dry and arid, the soils have a remarkably high mineral content, and plenty of iron which gives it the distinctive red color associated with Cuyo. For several decades now, wineries in Cuyo have been booming, as more and more of the global wine audience begin to recognize the region's remarkable potential for rich and flavorful wines.

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.
