Wine Review: The panel thought this dark ruby colored Malbec from the Uco Valley would be a nice pub wine. It opens with a mild black plum and pomegranate bouquet with hints of earth. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and rather juicy. The flavor profile is a gentle blackberry with notes of black raspberry. We also detected hints of olive, dark chocolate and cedar. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a bit sticky. The panel suggested pairing this Malbec with grilled steak tips or short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: BenMarco Malbec 2013 is testament to Uco Valley where it hails from, proffering a bouquet of fresh black fruit, floral notes (violets), primary aromas with a mineral background, very soft tannins and juicy acidity. Pairing: Barbecued beef, lamb or pork, semi-firm cow's and goat's milk cheeses.
