Dallas Morning News Wine of the Week!
Just in time for the freezing weather here...
Ben Marco, Mendoza, Malbec 2003
Argentine malbecs are often jammy, blackberry quaffers, great for burgers and pizza. This beautifully structured wine is from Argentina's hottest husband-and-wife team, Pedro Marchevsky and Susana Balbo. He sourced the grapes; she finessed silky, black fruit lifted by an edifice of vivid acidity and masterfully integrated, ripe tannins.
Available at Central Market, Mr. G's, Far Pointe Cellars, Centennial and Pogo's. $19.99 - Rebecca Murphy Wednesday, December 7, 2005.
