    Benmarco Dominio Del Plata Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Mendoza, Argentina

    Reviewed: April 26, 2014

    $18.95

      My Review: Dark, rich, and smoky with lots of dark plum and blackberry. There's a little vanilla in the finish. This is a very big, smooth wine and would pair perfectly with a rare steak in peppercorn sauce. A great wine on its own as well. Score: 90/100

                          My Review: Lemon, line, apricot with subtle notes of pear and peach. The taste is lemon & apricot. This wine is brightly acidic, like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc without the vegetal notes. An excellent wine for both seafood and creamy pasts. This was especially good with a chicken Alfredo with a lemon & garlic sauce. Score: 90/100

                            My Review: Lots going on in this wine. The fruit is black cheery and plum, but there's plenty of other aromas such as cedar, leather , smoke, and violet. A very pretty wine for the price. The taste is smooth and silky, with both black and tart cherry and a hint of green vegetable. Hard to beat as a wine for lighter tomato based pastas or pork dishes. I'd recommend for heavier dishes but it would be a shame to hide the complex aromas. Score: 91/100
