Benmarl Baco Noir 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly scented with notes of black plum, grape and wood spice topped with a touch of muskiness and a touch of dried cilantro. Bright on entry, this is medium bodied with a nice base of supple tannins. The fruit is fairly intense, picking up the black plum notes from the nose, yet a touch simple. More wild plum notes on the palate are joined by well-measured oak and blackberry notes that lead to the light, fresh black-fruited finish. Very well done in a style that gently recalls Northern European red wines. Very gluggable. 85pts

Just delivious! (Delivious = Delicious and Devious) Silky and pure, a little bit of vegetal and funk to make things interesting. Perfect for sipping and also for light appetizers or pasta with a light red sauce
