Bodega Benegas Red Bordeaux Blend Blend Finca Libertad 2009

Member Review by steve16046:

A red blend, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot. Pours a dark violet color, with no sedimet. Smells of cassis, dark berries, 'forest floor' and mocha. Starts off with a rich amount of cassis and dark berries such as black and blueberries. In the middle, it has a granular forest floor taste. Finishes off with more dark berries with an undertone of oak and mocha. A moderate lingering is left on the palate. This wine is slightly tannic, but not overdone. A really nice value, goes well with grilled red meats.

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
