Ben Marco Malbec 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaThis is quite serious malbec, balancing dark, brooding fruit with high-toned aromatics and gravel. There's also some underlying wood spice, from second-use French oak, that is deftly integrated. It's a savoury, structured style that still has generous fruit. At the moment, it benefits from some time in the glass, as it's still fairly dense with assertive, fine-grained tannins, but it makes for a rewarding pour, even more so if you have the patience to tuck it away for a few years. Good value and recommended.Tasted: 23 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.99 BCLS AB 25.00 NFL 26.99 NLLC Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
