James Suckling Review
Rated 96 Points
This really builds on the nose with notes of pure blackcurrants, iodine, ink, graphite, crushed stones, flint, morello-cherry essence and licorice. The fresh purity of the fruit that permeates the entire palate is what makes this wine. The tannins are so compact and dialed-in, framing tons of violet and lavender flavors and carrying them long on the finish. 75% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. Drink in 2022.

Wine Tasting Notes
BenMarco Expresivo is a wine with deep, bright ruby color. It has chalk, earthy, floral, peppercorn tree fruits notes. Keeps showing its stuff as it breathes in the glass - for folks who want the full experience and may be a bit impatient, decanting is a good idea. Perfect balance, great concentration and length, and loaded with fine, ripe tannins for having with food or for aging. This wine should also age beautifully for 10-25 years. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including grilled steak, roasted pork loin, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and most cream sauces.

    Outstanding wine

    Posted by Frank on Mar 6th 2019

    I love wines from Argentina and the BenMarco Expresivo is my favorite of them all. I tried this at a steak house last year and since then it's been a regular staple in my wine fridge.
