"Good medium ruby. Medicinal cassis, black plum, licorice and violet on the perfumed nose; offers more lift today than the Lujan de Cuyo bottling. Juicy, suave and fine-grained, with very good intensity to the dark fruit and spice flavors. This is also plenty ripe but shows a lighter touch and more detail than the Lujan de Cuyo version. Finishes with ripe, building but fine-grained tannins and a lingering chocolate flavor." 91 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"Rich, with a hefty dose of roasted vanilla and coffee leading the way for a core of dark plum and braised fig notes. Muscular and toasty through the full-bodied finish. For fans of the style. Best from 2009 through 2011. 370 cases made." 90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Nico Marchiori, Andreaâs father, farms this 128-acres vineyard, and is a strategic partner to ViÃ±a Cobos. He is an Italian immigrant with a pioneering spirit and a hardworking man who loves the land. The Marchiori vineyard is located at 3200 feet above sea level in Perdriel, LujÃ¡n de Cuyo, where the rocky and mineral materials of the soils play an essential role in regulating the growth of the vines.
The soils are poor in organic material and have deep layers with good drainage, with textures varying from silty loam to clay loam. Chardonnay and Malbec soils are rocky whereas Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon soils are lightly alkaline and their pH is about 7.4. Irrigation is another characteristic feature of Mendoza viticulture, done through channels called acequias, which carry pure snowmelt water from the mountains. The vineyard is planted to Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. " -Winery
"Bramare (brah-MAH-reh): Bramare is an Italian word meaning to yearn for. This name embodies the desire to produce expressive, world-class wines with a true sense of place, and pays tribute to the Italian heritage of the Marchiori family. "
"Deep garnet in color, this bold, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon boasts intense aromas of balckberry, red cherry, and cedr. The palate is dense and complex, exploding with flavors of cassis, mocha and tobacco that are richly accented with notes of smoke and earth. The silky mouthfeel is supported by fine, well integrated tannins that persist through the long finish. " -Winemaker
"Paul Hobbs visited Argentina in 1989 and he became immediately interested in both the terroir and Argentine culture, noticing the unique potential for Malbec and other varietals in the region. In 1997 Andrea and Luis met Paul in California and they decided to found ViÃ±a Cobos. Since then, Paul and his Argentine partners have grown their portfolio of ultra-premium wines to include Cobos Nico, Bramare, and Felino which continue to receive even greater accolades."
"As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, and for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to prospector to truffle-hunting dog. Hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak aging, he went on to become winemaker for Opus One and Simi wineries, and then consultant to Peter Michael, Fisher, Lewis, Catena and others. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991 and ViÃ±a Cobos in 1999. He continues to be a leading consultant winemaker around the globe." -Winery
