The Marchiori Estate from Vina Cobos is sourced from the Marchiori Vineyard and is planted to 18-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted at 3,270 feet (996 meters) and Malbec vines over 80-years-old, planted at 3,264 feet. The ultra-concentrated wine is simply magical right now and starts off with anise, Black Forest cake, blueberry cordial, Asian spices and crème de cassis. The palate is dense and decadent, showing notable tannin structure with intense weight and viscosity that is downright mesmerizing. Flavors of blueberry compote, dark chocolate covered espresso bean, exotic spice, violets and blackberry cobbler all marvelously come together and linger through the finish. A complete stunner, this is one of the most compelling wines out of Argentina. While glorious now following a one hour decant, this incredible wine will continue to evolve and drink beautifully over the course of the next two decades. Drink 2019-2040- 98 — a day ago
Råkade av misstag köpa ett argentinskt vin. Men, men. Lätt toastad, kaffe, svart te, mörka bär och lite dammiga tanniner. Väldigt drickbar för att vara så kraftfull. — 9 days ago

💬All I could ask from a solid Argentinian Malbec is here — a day ago
Nonexistent tannins but still and tasty blend tasting Malbec. Not our usual style but truly deserving of a high rating. — 6 hours ago
2008v. Deep garnet color. After a few minutes to open up, there's deep Bing cherries, purple plum, and dusty cocoa powder. On the palette, there's juicy fruit but not too bright- leans more dry old world style. Good acidity Despite 11yrs of age, soft tannins coat your mouth with a melty grip. Dark earth on the long finish. 14% ABV. Overall, a very well balanced and satisfying Malbec that's a little darker and more brooding than you typically get in a Malbec. — 8 days ago
What is going on here? Paul Hobbs making top notch, inexpensive Malbec in Mendoza?!? Dark fruit with great acidic balance and very approachable tannin. Not my typical preference, but this is very well made for under $20. Recommend some air time. — a day ago
Thinner than expected from the tasting notes at store but opened up after breathing a bit longer. Very dry in the mouth. Definite oak. — 2 days ago
Malbec 2015 Tapiz Alta Collection. I love these Argentina malbecs. The color is very opaque. The bouquet is rhubarb jam on toast. The initial palate brings in ripe blackberry, raspberry, and a hint of cherry. It’s almost like a Cab and Pinot Noir blend. The mid palate is colored with minerals and graphite. The finish is minimally dry and leaves absolutely no aftertaste of anything. The canvas is back to empty. Love this wine!!!!!!!!!!!! This will pair well with any meat or cheese. Actually a beet and goat cheese salad followed by prime rib and a sweet potato and asparagus would be FANTASTIC! — 25 days ago
