IWC 90 JS 90 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby-red. Slightly roasted blackberry, espresso and licorice on the nose, along with a peppery accent. Intensely flavored and nicely dense, showing noteworthy refinement to its dark berry and black cherry flavors. A touch deeper than the cabernet, finishing with serious tannins that spread out to dust the palate. Offers plenty of sex appeal already.
According to James Suckling - Plenty of ripe dark fruits with hints of earthy and funky undertones. Some might call it barnyard, but I like the decadence. Full body, soft tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 BenMarco Malbec blends grapes from Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley. This is eminently fruity, with aromas of damsons, bilberries, black pepper and tobacco, with a light palate and a short finish, with good acidity. It should work well with light foods as the acidity makes you salivate. Drink now-2017.
According to Wine Spectator - Juicy, with forward plum pudding and cherry puree notes, followed by hints of mocha and spice. Drink now.
Winemaker Notes - Beautiful, deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, full-bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. Some Bonarda has been blended for greater complexity and to achieve better balance. 13.9% ABV.
