SPECIAL EMAIL In yesterday’s email, we mentioned today getting in an $80.00 bottle of wine that we were going to be able to sell for $60.00. Well, it got sold before it walked in the door. BUT, we’ve got another deal. Bodega Benegas Malbec Mendoza 2005 $16.00 Wine Enthusiast 91 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. May 2007 This is normally $24.00. Star Distributors is discontinuing Benegas so they’ve made us a good deal. We currently have one case and think that there’s more. But there’s also a limited amount available from Star. Email us if you want some held for you.
