Product Description

James Suckling Review
Rated 93
A savory and juicy wine with blackberry and dark chocolate character. Full body, velvety tannins and a delicious finish. Rich tannin texture gives linear definition. Better in 2017.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 90+
As it was the case with the 2013, the 2014 Benmarco Malbec was produced with grapes from vineyards in Los Chacayes in the Valle de Uco and produced with as little intervention as possible, following the ideas of vineyard manager Edgardo del Popolo. The bunches were manually sorted, destemmed softly and the grapes fermented with daily pigeage with a maceration of 20 days. It matured in used French oak barrels for one year. There are notes of ripe plums and dark cherries, with a fresher palate and fine tannins, good balance and a dry, mineral finish. The riper notes turned more floral with time in the glass. It's an impressive 2014, especially for the price.

Wine Tasting Notes
Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, fullbodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.
