Bodega Benegas Red Blend Don Tiburcio 2008
Color: Bright with combined shades of purple from the Malbec and touches of ruby, typical of barrel matured wines. Aroma: A predomination of mature red fruits and a touch of chocolate vanilla provided by the Blend. Taste: Intense and fruity, with soft tannins and an impressive and persistent finish.
Bold; malbec is very salient in this blend and the slightly spicy finish makes for a good treat
This was a very good wine, that is complex, with a fair amount of tannin. It has a wet approach and a dry finish. The taste is very cherry and plum forward, with vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon undertones. The undertones bring out a complexity and depth to the cherry and plum that otherwise would not be accessible. We highly recommend this wine to anyone who wants to try a wine from Argentina for the first time.
