Tasting Notes: Bench 1775 produces two Malbecs, one sourced from the Okanagan Valley and this one, sourced from the Similkameen which offers a rich and succulent expression of the French variety. Robust, ripe dark berry fruit and supportive savoury-spicy notes grace the engaging nose while similar flavours and a kick of brambly berry acidity grace the full-bodied, silky palate. Finish has length and good balance with a touch of residual alcohol beneath the lingering spice. Ready to go now. 
Drink now-2020.
