Winemaker Notes

The Marshall pays tribute to the founder. These grapes are selected from the oldest vineyard rows on the Lunlunta vineyard in the Lujan de Cuyo. The Intensity of low yielding old vines produces some of the best Malbecs in the world. Its deep ruby red color and brooding flavors of blackberry and wild cherry yield a complex, yet elegant wine. Further dimension comes from aging in French Barrels for 18 months.

Very deep and intense color with blue notes, black fruits, tobacco, graphite, white pepper very well integrated with the oak, showing a good balance with the acidity, mineral, huge ripe and intense tannins.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Lush, pure, welcoming and sturdy, with dense black fruit aromas leading to a healthy, racy palate that's full of live-wire blackberry and cassis flavors. Seriously stacked Malbec with no timidity and a finish that oozes layered black fruit, chocolate and complexity. Drink this winter or hold until fall-winter of 2011.

Smoke, mulberry, blueberry, and lavender, nicely integrated oak, lengthy, drink now-8 years.

Bodega Goulart, Argentina
2008 The Marshall Malbec
The Goulart winery is a unique partnership between Erika Goulart, a Brazilian entrepreneur and Mauricio Parodi, one of the most knowledgeable and respected agronomists in Mendoza. Erika Goulart's late grandfather, Marshal Gastao Goulart, is famous in South America for leading the overthrow of the Brazilian government in 1932 Constitutional Revolution. Years after he passed away, Erika found among her grandfather's papers a lost title to prime vineyard property in Mendoza, which was planted in 1915 with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Mauricio Parodi was stunned by the potential of the Goulart old vineyards. He and Erika worked to restore these vineyards to their former glory.

Stretching from the Andes to Patagonia, Argentina's unique terroir lends to high quality wines. Formerly associated with inexpensive bulk wine but dramatically shifting focus from quantity to quality, Argentina is the most important wine-producing country in South America. Certainly excellent values abound here still, but increases in vineyard investment, improved winery technology, and a commitment to innovation since the late 20th century have contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains can be used to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Mendoza, a large and famous region responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white. The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends but was susceptible to viticultural problems. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it did flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 by a French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, but did not gain its current reputation as the national grape of Argentina until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century thanks to its easy-going drinkability.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of freshly turned earth, black fruits from berries to plums, and licorice, appropriately backed by dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, it can be quite intense and often needs time to mellow before becoming drinkable. In the Old World, its rusticity shines, with aged examples showing dusty notes of leather and tobacco. The best examples in all regions often possess a beguiling bouquet of violets.

Perfect Parings

Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
