I love Malbecs and with that said, I am extremely particular with this elevation loving grape of Argentinian fame (formerly of Bordeax). Benmarco is a purplish wine that has aromas consisting of black cherry, licorice and dark coffee. The flavors start with blueberry, chocolate and jam. This is a medium bodied wine that has a chewy jamminess that is balanced out with a lush acidity. This wine starts out with heavy flavors and ends light, a very nice wine that can you can drink today without cellaring - like most Malbecs.

Malbec and grilled foods......Malbec and pizza....Malbec is jammy or refined, depending on the winery. But Argentina, like Australia, produces so few poor vintages. BenMarco is a winery that produces the under $20 variety, and also produces Meritage varietals that run in the $60-$70 range. I've had both. I love both. The wine I'm reviewing tonight is $17.99 at Binny's if you live in the Chicago area. Under $20, no matter. I had it with my first ever pizza on the grill...what a lovely combination. I've had the 2007, the 2008 and now the 2009 BenMarco entry level Malbec, and none of them have let me down. Remarkably consistent. So, I would highly reccommend this wine while summer remains and you're out on the deck grilling foods or getting some take out from an Italian diner or Chinese diner. If the 2010 gets released before you read this, I wouldn't hesitate. This is a winner for the price no matter the vintage. This particular vintage contains 8% Bonarda, with 92% Malbec. I LOVE Malbec/Bonarda blends....so whatever the percentage blend, also a winner. Great summer red wine!

Bright ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice, pepper and sexy spices on the nose. A sweet, supple midweight with a seamless texture, if not quite as nuanced as the cabernet. In a distinctly easygoing style, finishing with very sweet tannins.

The 2008 Malbec, which contains 10% Bonarda, spent 11 months in 50% new French oak and 50% first use American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive nose of wood smoke, cinnamon, incense, and black cherry. Round, ripe, medium-bodied, and savory, this layered effort has a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Enjoy it over the nest 5 years.

Bright ruby-red. Licorice and exotic oak dominate the nose. Juicy and quite oaky, with chocolate, coffee bean and smoke flavors currently overshadowing the wineandrsquo;s fruit. Finishes dry and a tad medicinal, with firm tannins.

Beautiful purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, bull-bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish.

Brooding at first, with dark coffee, bramble and blackberry flavors, this turns decadent as it moves across the palate, offering lush fruit, ripe tannins and alluring spice and chocolate nuances. Powerful, but not heady, with an intriguing meaty note on the muscular finish. Drink now through 2006.

The 2010 Malbec contains 10% Bonarda in its makeup and received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Lovely aromas of black cherry, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and earthy minerals inform the nose of a ripe, succulent, intensely flavored wine that offers outstanding value and is meant for drinking over the next 5andndash;7 years.
