Bodega Benegas Red Blend Don Tiburcio 2009

Member Review by Argovino:

What a transformation – as it opens, the vegetal bouquet of eggplant and squash turns to black cherries and coffee. Then, in the mouth, there’s a velvet-smooth feel that makes the wine almost too easy to swallow. Hold it for a moment to appreciate the exotic fruit flavors of carambola and mangosteen, quite a rarity from an Argentine red, before the high alcohol content numbs your tongue. There’s lots to discover here, with the alcohol helping to prolong a finish that includes dark chili and chocolate. A steal! (AV 91, http://argovino.com/?p=1015)

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. Read less

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.
