Tasting Note: 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. Score - 94. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, April 2014)
