    The 2010 Cobos Volturno is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Malbec cropped on May 5 and 7. It comes from 80- and 15-year-old vines respectively from the Marchiolo Vineyard, then raised in new Taransaud oak for 18 months. It has a dense nose of blackberry, Christmas pudding, griottes, eau-de-vie and blueberries that all vie for attention like yapping puppies, the oak nicely assimilated into the fruit profile. The palate is succulent and fleshy on the entry with, again, a slight metallic edge tincturing the fruit. The finish is very sweet and demonstrative with grippy, sweet, ripe fruit but lacks the degree of delineation of some of their peers. Drink 2014-2025.

    (a 77/23 blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon; 15.4% alcohol): Full, deep ruby-red. Polished aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice with sexy oak tones of bitter chocolate, cocoa powder and espresso. Wonderfully velvety and rich, with outstanding verve to the primary black fruit, violet and licorice flavors. Lush but balanced wine; dense but nicely extracted and harmonious. Finishes with outstanding rising length, well-integrated new oak and noble tannins. Offers a lot of immediate sex appeal but this will be even better in five years.
