Benmarco Malbec. Dominio del Plata 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Light milk chocolate and herb notes greet the nose here along with some plummy and dark berry fruits. Soft and lightly sweet, this is the answer to the question of what the best white Zinfandel is. There’s enough sugar here to be off putting to some, but those looking for a very fruity style of rosé will be thrilled by the bright, juicy acidity that balances the sugar and yields a wine bursting with black cherry, plum and lightly spicy flavors that linger on the finish. 86pts

Dominio del Plata is a family-owned and run project of Susana Balbo (Enologist) and Pedro Marchevsky (Viticulturist). The core philosophies that they share, and that figure prominently in the production of their wines, are the following: Precision Viticulture This is a grape-growing philosophy that demands attention to detail, however small. The planting of the vineyards, varietal selections, vineyard management systems, water management, canopy conduction, sanitary precautions and harvesting decision are all managed personally by Pedro and Susana in order to achieve the highest quality standards. Sustainable Agriculture The entire project is specially designed and implemented in a way that doesn’t harm the natural resources, preserves the environment, functions according to social requirements, and at the same time maintains productivity in order to remain economically competitive. Superior Winemaking Skills Our winemaking skills and professional knowledge have been developed over more than two decades through intensive and prolonged education and research. From this accumulated knowledge, we have designed and constructed a winery that employs state-of-the-art enological technology for the processing of grapes and therefore the production of high-quality wine. Love and Passion Knowledge and experience are not the only keys to successful winemaking. Every step of top-quality wine production demands a love and a passion for the winemaking process in order to obtain a successful result. The dedication and diligence of our entire family working in the vineyard, in the winery and for the marketing of the wines gives the company its unique character. The constant search for perfection and the appreciation for fine wine, as well as our relationships with the people that contribute to the success of the winery, is physically embodied in the beauty of the Dominio del Plata Winery.

On the nose, Asian spices, cassis, incense, cedar and black cherry. Medium bodied and savory. On the palate, lots of incense, smoke, tobacco and leathery tones. Dark berry fruit with good balance of tannin. Nice. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 6/5/10

This is a good bottle of Malbec. Not as refined as some but lots of fruit up front followed by smoky, some what rustic notes. This was enjoyed with friends at an Argentinean steak house and was a great choice for that setting.

    The 2010 Malbec contains 10% Bonarda in its makeup and received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Lovely aromas of black cherry, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and earthy minerals.

    Der Wein aus Malbec und Cabernet Sauvignon zeigt eine tiefe Purpurrote Farbe mit dunklen Reflexen, Himbeer, Cassis und Kirschen-Aromen in der Nase. Angenehme, getoastete Vanille, schwarzer Pfeffer und Tabak-Note.Viele saftige, wunderbar strukturierte & weiche Tannine, langanhaltender Abgang.

    JS 92pts. - WA 91pts - W&S 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Beautiful 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. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

    Der Wein zeigt eine intensive violettrote Farbe und schwarze Reflexe in der Nase gedörrte Beeren, Cassis-Aromen, dezent geröstete Vanille, Kaffee und Schokoladen Note. Sehr voluminös mit kräftigem, würzigen Geschmack, gut strukturiert und mit weichem, süssen Tannin. Langer und intensiver Abgang, sicher etwas vom Besten was die Malbec Traube hergibt.

    According to the Wine Advocate: The 2008 Malbec, which contains 10% Bonarda, spent 11 months in 50% new French oak and 50% first use American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive nose of wood smoke, cinnamon, incense, and black cherry. Round, ripe, medium-bodied, and savory, this layered effort has a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Enjoy it over the next 5 years. Winemaker Notes - 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.
