90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2010

($18) Bright, deep ruby. Complex and inviting aromas of blackberry, tobacco, meat and smoky oak. Dense, sweet and serious, with noteworthy intensity and precision to the flavors of blackberry, pepper and spices. Finishes vibrant and long, with silky tannins and excellent lift. An outstanding value. (Incidentally, the Goulart wines are made by Luis Barraud, the partner of Paul Hobbs in the Cobos venture.)

Superb Value

Giving 5 stars! 4 star taste but given the cost I am moving it up to 5 stars. Would easily pay $45 in a restaurant for a Malbec of this calibre.

Bing cherry, blackberry, with a background of ?... earth? We both liked it very much all by itself. And Pat is not normally a Melbec fan. Not a long finish, but good enough.

Our first exposure to this Malbec a year ago was a little disappointing--a little thin up front and not much finish. Absolutely delicious a year later, with all sins forgiven! Great wine. Great value.

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
