BenMarco Malbec 2013
Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, fullbodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.
Wine SpectatorA lithe red, with refined flavors of cherry, plum and boysenberry, matched to notes of sandalwood. Juicy and buoyantly spicy on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made.
