Benjamin Nieto Senetiner Malbec 2013

We are excited to try a new Malbec, 2013 Benjamin Nieto Senetiner from Mendoza, Argentina, with a hanger steak on a nice crusty Calandra roll for dinner. As the splash of deep-hued purple color swirls around my glass, I detect a woodsy aroma mixed with plum. From the color and nose, I’m expecting a bold, full-bodied taste. My expectations are dashed as I begin sipping. While attractive on the nose, the wine is petite and pale on the palate. The tiny flavor yields a light finish. We try allowing some time for more aeration, but sadly, it is what it is. Maybe it would have tasted better had it aged longer in the bottle? Overall, Benjamin seems on the light side for a Malbec. Cost about $12.
