Reviews and Ratings

Alan Dunne rated this wine as 92/100
Benmarco 2016 is a classic Argentinean Cabernet Sauvignon from Los Árboles in the Uco Valley. Great value under $20. Dry, medium-bodied, fresh with bright dark plum, blackberry, cassis, savoury herb and dark spice flavours with great acidity for food on the palate. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Tannins are firm. Pair with grilled lamb chops. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
