Wine Advocate Review Rated 89 The 2010 BenMarco Expresivo is winery selection: a blend of 50% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 10% Tannat and 10% Petit Verdot from ungrafted, 42-year old vines and raised in new French oak for 14 months. It has ample red currant and strawberry fruit on the nose with hints of cocoa and black olive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe, sweet red berry fruit interlaced with vanilla. It is harmonious and smooth with a caressing, concentrated finish that should see it age with some style. Drink 2013-2020.
Wine Tasting Notes Wafting aromas of ripe red currants, black cherries and mildly smoky and sweet vanilla oak. Layers of currant fruit, dense black cherry, and notes of brown spice (cocoa, nutmeg), dark chocolate, and hints of sandalwood. Keeps showing its stuff as it breathes in the glass - for folks who want the full experience and may be a bit impatient, decanting is a good idea. Perfect balance, great concentration and length, and loaded with fine, ripe tannins for having with food or for aging. This wine should also age beautifully for 10-25 years. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including grilled steak, roasted pork loin, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and most cream sauces.
