TASTING NOTE:

I love the aromas here with black currant, black truffle, tanned leather and animal on the nose. Complex. Wet vineyard soil. Full-bodied, muscular and intense. It opens so well with air. Plenty of beautiful fruit and balance. Goes on for minutes. Intriguing wine that changes all the time.

-James Suckling, 96 pts

 

The 2012 Cobos Volturno Marchiori Vineyard is mostly Cabernet with a small amount of Malbec (around 3%) form the Marchiori vineyards in Perdriel. The vines are old, but the Cabernet is around 25 years old compared with the Malbec which is close to 80. The wine fermented in stainless steel and matured in 100% new French oak barrels. Very balsamic and ripe, it mixes notes of blackcurrants and camphor, some aromatic herbs and a touch of smoke and sweet spices. It's heady and it finished a little warm. This is definitively a ripe, big Cabernet-based blend. 

-Robert Parker, 93 pts

 

This immense Cabernet contains 3% Malbec, and it's about as ripe and raisiny as a wine can get while still holding onto a semblance of balance. Aromas of raisin and baked blackberry blend with rooty cola and vanilla notes. This feels heavy to the point of syrupy, while flavors of prune, mocha and blueberry finish chunky, with low acidity.
