Viña Cobos 2010 Cobos Marchiori Vineyard Malbec (Mendoza)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $225

Price aside, this is absolutely wonderful Malbec. The nose is pure and toasty, with minerally dark-berry aromas, cola and pastry notes. The palate is so rich and smooth it’s like liquid heaven, while flavors of polished blackberry, espresso and mocha pudding finish mellow as can be, like a silk robe coated in Swiss chocolate. Drink through 2016; 170 cases made.

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $44

This lush, modern Malbec explodes with power then simmers with complexities. Opaque in color, the bouquet issues intense blackberry, lemon peel, graphite and toast aromas. In the mouth, it’s full but not flabby, and then comes an avalanche of black-fruit flavors matched by notes of spice cake, molasses, pepper and mocha. It’s warm, toasty and full of licorice on…

Viña Cobos 2011 Volturno Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec (Perdriel)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $230

Minty, ultraripe blackberry aromas are alluring but ultimately familiar if you know the Cobos style. Ditto the palate, which is rich, thick, chewy and full of creamy oak and black-fruit flavors. This blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Malbec finishes smooth and creamy, with good balance for what amounts to a very ripe wine. Drink through 2018.

This bruiser of a Malbec shows an opaque purple color in front of an inky, jammy bouquet that’s rich and minerally. The palate on this single-vineyard winner is dense, with grip and huge flavors of blackberry, licorice and fresh raisin. On the finish, this gets a little warm and more dark, with a baked character. Drink through 2016; 80 cases made.

This tribute blend of 77% Cabernet and 23% Malbec is piercing and potent on the nose, with oaky berry, cassis, leather and herbal aromas that never go over the top.
