Blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate, raspberry, licorice, plum and oak. Great structure and well-integrated tannins.

The 2011 BenMarco Malbec begins with a very enticing and complex aroma of blackberry, licorice, sweet spice, violets and coffee. The full-bodied wine tastes smooth and tasty with lots of dark juicy fruit plus chocolate and coffee. The oak influence stands out fairly strong, so give it some time to breathe. The wine finishes dry and savory with good length and nice spice. This one would make a great match with a steak!

Very ripe fruit flavor, but enough bitter dark chocolate to balance the sweetness. Pretty bold, pretty good, too.

This was too much, too ripe fruit for me. Fortunately that hits my wife's palate. She enjoyed.

Los Chacayes is an extraordinary Terroir. Its sandy loam and rocky soils guarantees good permeability, limit plants growth and assures perfect ripeness. BenMarco Malbec is a testament to Uco Valley where it hails from, proffering aromas of fresh black fruit and floral notes of violets. The palate shows great balance, very fine tannins and a thread of acidity going through its core, lifting it up and going it lenght.

Demasiado delicioso...
