BenMarco Malbec 2016
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Alto Vale de Uco|
Wine AdvocateProduced with grapes from one vineyard in Chacayes in the Valle de Uco, the 2016 BenMarco Malbec is floral, spicy, aromatic, showy and expressive, with great freshness and lots of aromatic herbs, black pepper and flowers. This has both good ripeness and freshness, with very fine tannins. It's a short (the shortest!) vintage with moderate alcohol but good concentration. 200,000 bottles produced. In the last few years, this has been sourced from Altamira.
Wine EnthusiastDark cherry and berry aromas strike a pose that allows this tough-skinned Malbec to justify its rough, tartaric palate and lemony acidity. Varietally correct black cherry and plum flavors finish big and dense. Don’t expect elegance from this full-throated screamer.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
