Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Malbec from Susana Balbo opens with black plum and black cherry bouquet with hints of blueberry, violets, and pencil shavings. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, dense and rich. The flavor profile is blackberry tea and black licorice blend with notes of blueberry and graphite. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins linger and last for a while. The Tasting Panel would suggest pairing this Malbec with pulled pork or a crockpot beef stew. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Los Chacayes is an extraordinary terroir. Its sandy, rocky loam soil guarantees good permeability, limits the growth of the plant, and ensures perfect ripening. BenMarco Malbec is a testimony of Valle de Uco, endowed with aromas of black berries, notes of violets, pronounced acidity, firm tannins and great length. Grilled red meats, sausages, seasoned or roasted pork, hard cheeses, and pasta with meat-based sauces.
