"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."~Stephen Tanzer
"Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, full-bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance."~Winery Notes

In 1999 Susana Balbo crafted a line of wines to showcase the ripe fruit expression of her sustainably-farmed Mendoza vineyards. The philosophy is a simple one: grow great grapes and make wines that are true to their place. Minimal intervention during the growing season and through harvest allows the true fruit character to develop. Combine this with Susana's winemaking skills and the result is wines that express the powerful fruit flavors, the ripe tannins and the incredible length and balance that can only come from this one place: Mendoza.
