Bodegas Benegas Juan Benegas Malbec 2009 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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!

This Malbec is one of the most elegant and complex at this price range (10-12 USD). I love it.

Thanks for the note. It's possible I had a bad bottle.
