Bodegas Benegas Juan Benegas Malbec 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Somewhat muted fruit cake and dark chocolate notes on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Abbreviated finish of dark fruit and herbs
Here's a Malbec that just doesn't make the cut for me. It's a bit disappointing because it's flat, lacking that richness and wild berry edge that so many others showcase. It runs around $12. Raise a glass of something else!
