Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Dominio del Plata, from the Uco Valley wine region, BenMarco Expresivo 2018 is a rich, smooth and sultry, medium-bodied red wine blend of Bonarda, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Edy del Popolo is the winemaker and viticulturist for this very expressive wine with blackberry, dark cherry, violets, savoury herb flavours with ultra balanced acidity on the palate. Ready to enjoy. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
