Vina Cobos Volturno 2018 - In Bond

  • Argentina
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Malbec
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass

Produced only in exceptional vintages, Cabernet Sauvignon vines of over 50 years old at the Marchiori Estate are planted at 1000m altitude in deep clay loam soils, with a substrata of river washed cobbles and round stones. Aged for 18 months in a combination of new and second use French barrels before bottling unfined and unfiltered. This is an exceptional wine demonstrating concentration, richness with balance and sophistication.

98 Points - James Suckling “Blackcurrants and blackberries in the nose with licorice, sweet tobacco, iron and tile. Black olives too. Full-bodied, tight palate with intense, super fine tannins that give the wine a seamless and almost endless finish. I like the iodine and tile undertones to this. Wonderful center palate. Perhaps the best Volturno yet? 88% cabernet sauvignon, 11% malbec and 1% cabernet franc. Try after 2025.”

Vina Cobos

Vina Cobos was founded in 1997, this high altitude winery in Argentina’s famed Lújan de Cuyo district is the brainchild of renowned Napa winemaker Paul Hobbs and his partners, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud.

Production is centered on the release of wines from old vines with low yields across four labels: Felino, Bramare, Bramare Single Vineyard and Cobos. Felino represents the entry level wines with an emphasis on varietal character, fruity notes and freshness on the palate. Being versatile styles they drink well on their own or with food. Bramare, the next tier up, comprises varietal wines from the specific parcels of the Lújan de Cuyo and Valle de Uco regions. These are often vineyard sites owned by growers with whom the winery has long-standing contractual arrangements.

A change in gear at this level sees the wines undergo fermentation with indigenous yeasts, oak ageing in premium barrels with fining and filtration avoided for maximum flavour expression. It is with the Bramare Single Vineyard range where terroir expression is remarkable. In particular, the Marchiori Vineyard, which is owned by Andrea Marchiori’s family showcases vines of more than 50 years of age with a south-eastern exposure that result in wines of both opulence and balance. The Malbec produced here is profound, long-lived and an outstanding example of this variety. At the very top of the estate’s portfolio is The Cobos label which includes the Malbec and a Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend called Corte uNico, recently renamed Volturno.
