Gougenheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Unlike the Malbec from the same Argentinian vineyard, previously reviewed here, which, for what it is, represents an unqualified success, this is a nice if not particularly distinguished wine. My impression is that it has not yet settled in, the melange of dark fruit has something a little unripe and not absolutely blended about it. I'd give it a couple more years in the bottle to see what happens. Still, at $8.99, it'ss worth taking a chance on.
