Benmarco Expresivo 2016

Member Review by zufrieden:

The BenMarco (Dominio de la Plata, S. A.) Expresivo Malbec blend is my first. The wine is inky-black in the glass - completely opaque, with a very inviting, rich scent of plums and sweet cherry and a hint of spice (light oak). Damson plum and cherry overlain with vanilla and soft wood greet the palate on entry; the wine is slightly acidic, elegant and cleansing on the back end. This is a serious wine, perfect now, but will last 3-5 years. Malbec earthiness is softened by 25% Cabernet Franc in the blend. Well done. 93.

Minimal intervention during the growing season and through harvest allows the true fruit character to develop. Combine this with Susana’s winemaking skills... Read more
Starting in 1999 Susana Balbo crafted a line of wines to showcase the ripe fruit expression of her sustainably- farmed Mendoza vineyards.

Minimal intervention during the growing season and through harvest allows the true fruit character to develop. Combine this with Susana’s winemaking skills and the result is wines that express the powerful fruit flavors, the ripe tannins and the incredible length and balance that can only come from this one place: Mendoza.
