"The top of the range, the 2012 Cobos Malbec Marchioli Vineyard is sourced form the oldest vineyards in the Marchiori estate in Perdriel in the Luján de Cuyo department of Mendoza. The wine fermented in stainless steel vats and matured in brand new French oak barrels for some seven months. It's a ripe, heady and floral Malbec with plenty of notes from the creamy oak, but it feels like the fruit has been able to integrate the 100% new oak quite well, which is better than some of its Bramare siblings. Perhaps the natural concentration of the juice from these 80-year-old vines helps the full-bodied palate to feel quite integrated and show good freshness. There is a special vibrancy to the fruit that is structured with abundant, fine-grained, sweet tannins. I guess this one will develop nicely in bottle. 7,776 bottles produced."
