Gouguenheim Malbec Reserve 2009

Member Review by terroir360:

How does a winemaker get his or her start? What sets them down the path towards this profession? We enjoy reading about the history of a place and its people provided by wineries, and Gouguenheim is no exception. As their website states, “Born in Argentina to French parents, [Winemaker] Patricio Gouguenheim's love for wine started at the age of 7 when he was given a little bit of wine (mixed with sparkling water!) with every meal. No doubt this was a catalyst for him entering the world of wine later on in life.” Patricio’s Reserve (Reserva) Malbec spends extra time in oak to produce a wine with even more richness and complexity. While Gouguenheim’s standard Malbec certainly isn’t a delicate red wine, the Reserve turns it up a notch or two. This is the bottle for red wine afficionados who crave power and substance, which the Gouguenheim delivers in abundance.
