Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Malbec based blend opens with a boysenberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry and boysenberry blend with notes of fine minerality and oak. I also detected hints of black pepper. The finish is rather dry and its refined moderate tannins stick around for a very long time. This wine certainly over delivers for the money. I would pair it with a well marbled-ribeye, Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: BenMarco Expresivo, is a wine with deep, bright ruby color. It has chalk, earthy, floral, peppercorn tree fruits notes. It is a vertical wine with ultra-fine-grained tannins, long after taste and great aging potential. Pair with grilled meats and medium-strong cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
