This dense red exhibits a creamy edge to the dark cassis, plum pudding, licorice and spice box notes. Mouthcoating yet fresh, with silky tannins marking the long, smoky finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2020.
The 2011 Cobos Volturno is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec from the oldest ungrafted Malbec vines and 16-year-old Cabernet from the Marchiori vineyard in Perdriel (Lujan de Cuyo) fermented in inox and aged in new Taransaud oak barrels for 18 months. The wine shows very young, a little backward and reticent in the nose, where it takes some time to appreciate notes of black cherries, creamy oak, vanilla and sweet spices. The full-bodied palate shows a combination of the round, sweet tannins from the Malbec and the more austere ones from the Cabernet, with supple fruit, and a long, intense finish. A powerful Cabernet rounded by the Malbec. If you like powerful, concentrated wines, this is one of the best. Drink 2016-2025.
