Susana Balbo Benmarco Cabernet Sauvignon
91 Points and "Best Cabernet Sauvignon" Descorchado's
Susana developed the Benmarco brand to be a range of wines produced with minimal intervention, to show off the purity of fruit that the ideal Mendoza growing conditions are capable of producing.
Yet another stunning wine from Susana. Mendoza is producing some great Cabernet these days, as well as the Malbec it is famous for. This wine is 90% Cabernet with 5% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. There's huge fruit on the palate with sweet oak and mouth coating tannins. This is a big wine with power and elegance combined. Great stuff!
"BenMarco Cabernet Sauvignon is a bright wine with persistent flavors of currant, cassis, plum, plus a hint of herbs and juicy acidity, finishes with firm tannins and very good grip".
