Ben Marco Expresivo 2018

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaA blend of 85/15 malbec and cabernet franc, this is quite perfumed and fragrant, not just with floral aromatics but also exotic spices and graphite, with deftly integrated wood (70% new). There's a good amount of vibrant dark fruits, too. Like Ben Marco's single varietal malbec, this evolves nicely in the glass. It makes for quite an alluring wine to revisit over the course of an evening, with good structure and freshness to enjoy now or over the next 4-5 years. And it's surprisingly light on its feet for 14.5% abv, too. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.Tasted: 01 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 47.99 BCLS AB 48.00 select private retailers ON 38.00 The Beer Guy Producer: Dominio del PlataDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
