Benmarco Malbec 2007
External Reviews for Benmarco Malbec
Very juicy, with fresh-cut plum and fig fruit flavors laced with violet, graphite and high-toned spice notes. Long, racy finish. Drink now through 2010.
Good full medium ruby. Primary scents of black fruits, violet and licorice pastille. Sweet and lush on entry, then primary and fruity in the middle, with noteworthy concentration and little obvious oakiness showing. Finishes with compelling sweetness and a suggestion of bitter chocolate. A couple years in bottle should bring more complexity. Both this and the 2005 version include 10% bonarda.
Good full ruby. Aromas of black fruits, licorice, menthol, dark chocolate and smoked meat. At once creamy and juicy, with very good sweetness and grip to the dark berry flavors. Finishes with suave tannins and very good persistence.
Blended with 10% Bonarda; spice box, incense, lavender, black cherry; rich, plush palate.
At the suggested price, it is a steal. The 2007 Malbec contains 10% Bonarda. It received the same oak regimen as the Cabernet. Dark ruby purple-colored, it exhibits a kinky perfume of black cherry, wild black raspberry, earth notes, and leather. On the palate there is plenty of jammy fruit, bright acidity, excellent balance, and a lengthy finish. While it may well evolve for 1-2 years, it can be enjoyed now. It too is a great value.
Good bright ruby. Aromatic nose combines blueberry, licorice pastille, violet and sexy oak. Supple, sweet and perfumed on the palate, offering good breadth and finishing with suave tannins. This juicy, persistent wine offers early appeal.
Quite ripe and forward, with lots of linzer torte, loganberry, melted licorice and plum cake flavors that glide along a sweet, round texture. Solid length. Very tasty. Drink now through 2010.
