Pedro Marchevsky – owner of Ben Marco – is arguably one of the most educated and experienced Argentine viticulturists. His philosophy is to grow grapes and make wines that are true to their place. No copying French-style wines here! Combine that with his wife Susan Balbo’s winemaking, and well, the results speak for themselves.
Ben Marco’s (“son of Marcos” in Hebrew) Malbec also has 10% Bonarda and spent 11 months in oak. You get the dark purple of Malbec, a sniff of cinnamon, black cherries, pepper and smoke. Dry oak cherry first sip leads to a tart plum finish with good acid to be able to drink this with sausage or lasagna.
