BenMarco Malbec 2013
Wine AdvocateThere is a change in the Benmarco line since 2013 when viticulturalist Edgardo del Popolo arrived at the winery. The 2013 BenMarco Malbec is now sourced from vineyards in Vista Flores and Chacayes in the Valle de Uco The nose is really floral and fruit-driven (black fruit), a little spicy and displaying elegance and poise. The palate is vibrant and focused with pure fruit and silky, fine tannins to make it really drinkable. A great Malbec from Uco and very nicely priced. 125,000 bottles produced.
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.
