Viña Cobos 2005 uNico Mendoza

    Tasting notes: Inky, powerful, and saturated with plum and spice, the wine presents amazing structure and complexity that leave no doubt that Argentina is redrawing the map of world-class wine regions. Worth knowing: Although winemaker Paul Hobbs produces remarkable wines from his base in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, his greatest efforts lie far to the south, in Argentina. Attracted to the country’s signature malbec grape, Hobbs has touched the sky again and again with each new vintage. A dedicated, state-of-the-art winery facing the great wall of the Andes is proof of the vintner’s commitment to the Mendoza region—as is Viña Cobos 2005 uNico Mendoza, a bordeaux blend of 63 percent cabernet sauvignon and 37 percent malbec dedicated to vintner Nico Marchiori.
