BenMarco Malbec 2013

Mendoza, ArgentinaLove the freshness here on the nose. The colour is dark with ripe red fruits with a dash of blueberry and that typical but not overwhelming savoury undercoat. The textures are soft and dense with more black/red fruit flavours and spice, licorice and chocolate. A wine in transition (somewhere in the middle) from the old style to the fresher more mineral, red fruit, modern style. A gold medal winner at the 2016 Argentine Wine Awards and a solid value here in Canada. Try with steak and don’t be afraid to age this another three to five years.Tasted: 24 February 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 18.00 NS 23.00 BC 23.99 BCLS QC 20.25 AB 25.00 NS 23.25 Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
