Raring to go is this huge, forward Malbec made by Federico Benegas (with consultant Michel Rolland). If you know the rep of the latter, then it's not surprising that this bomber weighs in at 15% alcohol. Ripeness is evident at all turns as the wine shows monstrous black-fruit aromas and flavors, all supported by potent oak that results in strong nuances of chocolate mint chip and mocha.
