BenMarco Malbec is a testament to Uco Valley, from which it hails, proffering aromas of fresh black fruit and floral notes of violets. The palate shows great balance, very fine tannins, and a thread of acidity going through its core, lifting it up and going its length. Pair with beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

Produced with grapes from Los Chacayes, the 2017 BenMarco Malbec has a mixture of floral and black and red fruit aromas with some spicy and toasty notes, coming through as aromatic and expressive. It has a juicy palate with freshness and a very tasty and expressive finish.

Bright ruby-red. Lovely violet lift to the aromas of blackberry and cherry. Plush, rich and sweet, with its crushed black raspberry and black pepper flavors offering considerable immediate appeal. Less gripping than the Cabernet Sauvignon but smooth and refined, showing good depth of flavor. Finishes classically dry and pure, with a light dusting of tannins that are not quite as smooth as those of the Cabernet. I'd give this wine another 6 to 12 months in the bottle before pulling the cork. Incidentally, Edgardo del Pópolo is responsible for making the BenMarco wines, in the same Agrelo winery in which the Susana Balbo wines are made.
