Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 27th Aug 2015

"There is a change in the Benmarco line since 2013 when viticulturalist Edgardo del Popolo arrived at the winery. The 2013 BenMarco Malbec is now sourced from vineyards in Vista Flores and Chacayes in the Valle de Uco The nose is really floral and fruit-driven (black fruit), a little spicy and displaying elegance and poise. The palate is vibrant and focused with pure fruit and silky, fine tannins to make it really drinkable. A great Malbec from Uco and very nicely priced. 125,000 bottles produced." (92 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Feb 2015

"Bright ruby-red. Complex aromas of black fruits, coffee bean and smoky, nutty oak. Round, broad and ripe, conveying an impression of soft extraction to the flavors of blackberry and violet. Not quite as generous in the middle as the Susana Balbo Malbec (Balbo also makes the BenMarco wines) but these tannins are sweeter and finer. Finishes with excellent length. An excellent value." (90 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Jul 31, 2015

"A lithe red, with refined flavors of cherry, plum and boysenberry, matched to notes of sandalwood. Juicy and buoyantly spicy on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made." (89 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
