Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blueberries framed by hints of spices and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and notes of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a ripe and rich style of wine with long velvety finish. Pairing: Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to game birds or even meat-based pastas.

Wine AdvocateThe style of the 2016 Susana Balbo Signature Malbec shows the hand of the winemaker, with a little warmer fermentation and perhaps a little more extraction. However, in the cooler and wetter 2016, this feels as fresh and floral as the BenMarco Malbec, and it has a polished and balanced palate, with some fine-grained tannins and clean, pure flavors. Precise, focused and fresh. 100,000 bottles produced.

Wine EnthusiastSweet berry aromas of blueberry and blackberry are a touch oaky and suggestive of graphite. A plump but pulling palate is quite dry and tannic, but not mean or raw. Savory plum and berry flavors include a hint of soy sauce, while this is flush on the finish.

Wine SpectatorA crunchy red, with zesty red fruit flavors backed by fresh acidity. Dried raspberry and sandalwood notes on the finish. Drink now. 4,300 cases imported.
