Premium wines from the high-altitude Argentine project of winemaker Paul Hobbs, one of the most trusted, influential winemakers in the world.

From their first vintage in 1999, the wines of Viña Cobos have consistently reset the bar for quality, complexity and authenticity in premium Argentine winemaking.

Paul Hobbs and his team have identified and developed vineyard sites that best reflect the potential and purity of Mendoza as well as reaching southward to explore exciting new opportunities in Patagonia. These are wines of significance and artistry that will be treasured additions to any cellar.

Zuccardi

     Zuccardi: Mendoza magic

“Zuccardi keeps going from strength to strength and is doing incredible work in the vineyards.” (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, June 2018)

“In the space of 20 years, the winery and its standing in the Argentinean wine industry have been transformed. Zuccardi then was a business that sold cheap wine from the east of Mendoza, that bottled own labels for supermarkets; today it makes some of the best wines in the southern hemisphere and its young, talented, ambitious winemaker wants to compete with the European greats.” (Tim Atkin, MW, 2018 Argentina Special Report)

The goal, explains third-generation winemaker Sebastián Zuccardi, is “not to strive for perfect wines, but wines that express the place, the region.” Even so, that doesn’t stop them from coming remarkably close to perfection.

Bordeaux 2016: A tale of consistency and quality

     Bordeaux 2016: A tale of consistency and quality

“The best 2016s are deep and intense, yet also pulse with a real sense of energy.” (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, April 5, 2017)

“The [2016s] have a classicism that reminds me of the great wines of the 1980s, but they have much more precision and clarity due to advances in viticulture and winemaking since then.” (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Feb. 4, 2019)

“While 2016 is an incredible vintage … the greatest wines of this amazing year sing not so much about the vintage … but about their vineyards … A lot of experts are plumping for Left Bank because the caliber of Cabernet Sauvignon in many of the top wines of the Médoc is so jaw-droppingly gorgeous. This is true. But there are also some heart-thumpingly beautiful Merlots on the Right Bank, which are every bit as good as their Cabernet counterparts on the other side of the estuary. Therefore, I don’t believe that 2016 favors a side …” (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, robertparker.com, Nov. 30, 2018) 

“What makes the 2016 vintage so special is the quality across the Bordeaux hierarchy. The same character found in the most complex wines is also apparent in the simpler options. They all offer bottlings with rich, ripe fruit and a tannic structure that promises longevity.” (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, March 29, 2019)

Bordeaux 2019: Single-vineyard wines of J. Maltus

      Bordeaux 2019: single-vineyard wines of J. Maltus

Inimitable wines of indelible focus and refinement, “Jonathan Maltus’s 2019s are superb across the board.” (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, June 2020)

Since 2004, outspoken maverick winemaker Jonathan Maltus has championed single-vineyard expressions from Bordeaux. His big, bold small-batch wines are distinctive, inimitable, highly sought-after takes on Saint-Émilion Grand Cru. Maltus was awarded an OBE in 2016 for his services to wine and winemaking. The late Steven Spurrier said of the award: “[Maltus’s] wines speak for themselves and should also be awarded an OBE – Ordre de Bordeaux Excellence.” (decanter.com, June 15, 2016)

“… I imagine many [consumers] will be drawn to the micro-cuvées, Le Carré, Le Dôme and Les Astéries, in particular, and rightly so. In my view, though, the most impressive wine in the lineup is Teyssier because of its quality at a production level that is very hard to achieve.” (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, June 2020)

Please note these are en primeur offers with en primeur pricing and en primeur terms and conditions.

Quantities are limited and demand is certain to be high. Don’t wait – order today.
