Benmarco Malbec 2010

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.
