Gougenheim Malbec 2009
I liked the little reliefs on the label, which also discusses the wine's "terrior" - woof woof! Interesting aroma with a dash of cinnamon. A robust malbec that grabs you by the lapel but doesn't yell in your face. Some nutty tannins, a little plum, and a light smokiness that plays around the periphery. Earthy but not abrasive - quite good for an inexpensive malbec.
Good nose, good body...went well with marinated flank steak.
Rating 88 : Full body nice dry and spicy. long medium nose well rounded . Good price $ 8
Binny's - $10/bottle
This Malbec packs a punch. Very dark red in color. I feel a rich rush of plum and black cherry that quickly fades. A slight taste lingers.
