Gougenheim Malbec 2007

This is a young but richly flavored full bodied wine. It exhibits the characteristic Argentinian Malbec combination of intense red fruit flavor and just enough tannin to keep it honest. The nose is good , the color is an intense red and the finish is relatively long lasting. At the present sale price of $8.99 it represents good value. I would recommend it as an accompaniment to most grilled meats as well as to roast chicken, which was our choice.

Tried a Gougenheim Reserve the other night - very nice. $15 and worth it.
