The 2013 Benmarco Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced form Los Árboles in the Uco valley, at the limit of Tupungato and Tunuyán. There is riper fruit here, black cherries and blackberries plus good varietal character with herbal aromas and plenty of cracked black pepper. There is nice freshness, a lot less oak and higher acidity than in previous vintages. The tannins are fine and the wine is long and easy to drink. 36,000 bottles produced.

Bright ruby-red. Tighter on the nose than the Malbec, with reticent berry flavors showing a pungent leafy, peppery Cabernet Franc character. Also less pliant and open on the palate, with the slightly green impression contributing to the less-generous mouth feel. This serious, firmly tannic wine calls for at least a couple years of patience.
