2009 BenMarco Malbec Mendoza 750ml
An excellent lush, chewy, and bright fruit-filled Malbec with a exotic 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.
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Yummy and super rich with bright acidity. Full and rich, with toasted oak, chocolate and coffee. This is very long and continues to develop.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Blended with 10% Bonarda; spice box, incense, lavender, black cherry; rich, plush palate.
