"The 2012 Cobos Volturno Marchiori Vineyard is mostly Cabernet with a small amount of Malbec (around 3%) form the Marchiori vineyards in Perdriel. The vines are old, but the Cabernet is around 25 years old compared with the Malbec which is close to 80. The wine fermented in stainless steel and matured in 100% new French oak barrels. Very balsamic and ripe, it mixes notes of blackcurrants and camphor, some aromatic herbs and a touch of smoke and sweet spices. It's heady and it finished a little warm. This is definitively a ripe, big Cabernet-based blend. 4,572 bottles produced."
