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

The historic mountainous region of Cuyo in central-west Argentina, remains the nation's key wine producing area to this day, producing over eighty percent of the country's wines. Argentinian wines have gone from strength to strength over the past few decades, and it is undoubtedly the region of Cuyo which produces Argentina's most characterful and representative wines. Cuyo's dry and arid soil, rich in iron and other minerals has proven to be an ideal environment for the cultivation of Malbec grapes, alongside several other varietals which thrive in the hot climate and reach full ripeness each autumn, expressing their fruit-forward character. The vineyards of Cuyo are fed by the great Desaguadero River and its tributaries, helped by the extensive irrigation projects which have been undertaken over the past century.

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.
