(January 22, 2015) ... After rattling through 3 or 4 wines in quick succession I took a break from my Virgin Wine Club wines, but here I am almost a month later going back to that well to taste another. This one's from Patagonia in Argentina and is made from Argentina's mainstay red grape: Malbec. This one proved to be a big fruity number from start to finish. The nose was fruit-loaded with blueberry and black cherry, with hints of pepper and mocha backing it up ... Palate was a little more subdued, kicking things off with a gentle spice followed by fine tannins, but above all possessed a gentle smoothness across the palate. It wasn't all just fruit in the mouth but the finish was a succulent mix of blackberry, cassis, along with some blueberry skin - okay so maybe fruit forward would be a good description here.
