Produced with grapes from one vineyard in Chacayes in the Valle de Uco, the 2016 BenMarco Malbec is floral, spicy, aromatic, showy and expressive, with great freshness and lots of aromatic herbs, black pepper and flowers. This has both good ripeness and freshness, with very fine tannins. It's a short (the shortest!) vintage with moderate alcohol but good concentration. 200,000 bottles produced. In the last few years, this has been sourced from Altamira.

Dark cherry and berry aromas strike a pose that allows this tough-skinned Malbec to justify its rough, tartaric palate and lemony acidity. Varietally correct black cherry and plum flavors finish big and dense. Don't expect elegance from this full-throated screamer.

(a lower-than-normal 13.5% alcohol for this bottling; Susana Balbo ages this wine in second-use French oak to preserve primary fruit aromas): Inviting dark ruby-red. Lovely violet lift to the vibrant aromas of blackberry, chalky minerals and earth. At once juicy and creamy, in a more European style, showing more tension than weight to its dark berry flavors. Vibrant and nicely delineated thanks to its relatively low 3.55 pH and sound acidity.

Straightforward dried red fruit flavors are accented by mineral and dried beef notes in this soft red. Drink now. 13,500 cases imported.
