What the Critics Have to Say!

"Produced with grapes from one vineyard in Chacayes in the Valle de Uco, the 2016 BenMarco Malbec is floral, spicy, aromatic, showy and expressive, with great freshness and lots of aromatic herbs, black pepper and flowers. This has both good ripeness and freshness, with very fine tannins."

 "This still has the morello cherries you would expect, but there's certainly a layer of more subtle complexity in the form of bark, tar and creme de cassis. Full body, finely judged acidity, soft but structured tannins and a chewy finish. Drink now.
