BRAISED BONELESS BEEF SHORT RIBS
2011 BENMARCO MALBEC
"Bright red-ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, kirsch and licorice complicated by game and spices. Dense, juicy and bright, with good floral lift and perfume to its dark fruit and sexy chocolatey oak flavors. Comes across as sweeter than the 2011 cabernet. Nicely balanced, long wine with supple tannins and good grip" Steve Tanzer 90 points
|In a country dominated by male winemakers, Susana Balbo stands out not only for her gender, but for her incredible skill and experience. She has been making wine since she earned her enology degree in 1981, and she has probably produced a wider variety of wines than any other winemaker in Argentina. Susana was the first Argentine winemaker to be hired as a consultant to make wine outside of Argentina. She has made wine in Australia, California, Chile, France, Italy, South Africa, and Spain, and she spends a month each year in a different wine region of the world studying with local winemakers and growers.
After twenty years of producing wines for others, Susana decided it was time to apply her education and experience to her own wines and put her name right on the bottle. Susana strives for balance in her wines, with layers of complexity coming from the individually fermented varietals. She wants people who drink her wines to feel that every sip from the glass is as exciting as the first.
