Vina Cobos Cocodrilo Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Posted by

Here is a wine made by Paul Hobbs’ Argentina project in Mendoza: Vina Cobos. Despite the bottle designs being very critter-like, if this wine is any indication, Cobos is putting out some good value mid-range wines.

I smelled chocolate, cherry and blueberry on the very sumptuous nose with the palate expanding to include caramel, licorice, twigs, earth, and a toast-like character. I’d say this is very Napa-like in style, but still retains regional distinctiveness. A great everyday drinking wine that will pair great with many of your favourite red meats. 14.7% ABV.

Very Good+

$35 at Taphouse Liquor Store.
