Vina Cobos Voltumo 2009
Deep crimson hued and fragrant with ripe raspberry, cocoa and anise, this is a weighty, richly textured malbec. A velvety palate unfolds with black and red fruits in a tight weave, as subtle notes of caramel and graphite add intrigue, complementing the supple tannins over a lengthy finish. Alcohol 14.9%
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Very smooth. Blackberries and oak.
Bamboo and water chestnut dominate the nose in stunning and unusual fashion, and the savory note is present in the mouth as well, where it combines with dark fruit and a touch of citrus for a many-layered experience, the only defect being a somewhat bitter finish.

Stewed fruits and toffee beckon in the nose, and they don’t disappoint – nice structure and a suitable density carry the flavors on through. Makes a good case for the combination of barrel (30%) and steel (70%) fermentation! (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=331)
With a nose of chocolate, fresh wood, and blackberries, the 2009 Bramare Malbec doesn't disappoint. It shows ample body and a luxurious texture. I wouldn't turn down a glass of this, if it was offered to me.
Es un blend de 88% cabernet sauvignon, 8% syrah y 4 % petit verdot 8 meses en barrica de roble americano x Paul hobbs
Fantastica nariz, muy buen sabor en boca con largo final, notas de menta por los 18 meses en barrica francesa, dejar respirar o decantar, no esta filtrado.

Deep, broody black fruit, anise, raisins and a rich, sweet palate with a finish of cigar box, chocolate and coffee.
A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2009 Vina Cobos Bramare Malbec Lujan de Cuyo 750ml
Bamboo and water chestnut dominate the nose in stunning and unusual fashion, and the savory note is present in the mouth as well, where it combines with dark fruit and a touch of citrus for a many-layered experience, the only defect being a somewhat bitter finish.
Fresh, with forward, easygoing raspberry, vanilla and licorice notes. Juicy finish. Drink now.
Ripe and easygoing, with straightforward apple and pear notes backed by modest butter on the finish. Drink now.
This solid, juicy Cabernet delivers plum, currant, vanilla and cocoa notes backed by a fleshy, juicy finish. Drink now through 2009.
