The Malbec grapes for this elegant red wine are selected from several mountain vineyards in the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyon districts of the Mendoza wine region that are planted at altitudes of 2,300 and 3,800 feet above sea level. The cool nights high on the mountainside where the vines for this wine are planted provide a lively, vibrant balance for this full-bodied wine that is redolent of blackberry and black cherry. Terrific smoky finish with a lingering note of dried herbs. Finishes with attractive black fruit and minerality. Polished tannins. Pair with prime rib. This unfiltered Argentine red wine is produced by the renowned Californian winemaking consultant Paul Hobbs.

Malbec food pairings: beef,  turkey, tomato sauces, hamburgers, spaghetti and meat balls.

Reviews and Ratings

Cobos Felino 2016 is a full-bodied Malbec with grapes sourced from the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo districts in the Mendoza. This unfiltered Argentine red wine is produced by the renowned Californian winemaking consultant Paul Hobbs. The wine is purple hued with a black plum, cassis and ripe blackberry nose. On the palate, more ripe blackberries as well as hints of leather and violets. Tannins are easy and this Malbec is easy to enjoy now. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
