Having travelled the World, I was able tried Malbec wines from numerous wineries, but having tried Patland Malbec, I should either stop travelling, or stop trying other Malbec wines. Let's say that I am not going to stop travelling :). From the moment a have poured the glass, and have observed the depth of color and fullness of body, until the moment when scent has reached out, and the next moment when silky smooth taste and texture has reached my palate leaving an amazing trace, which can only be found in Napa. This is most definitely a Malbec for a very special moment to enjoy, and to remember. Patland Cabernet Sauvignon is next on my list to try, but I shall wait a few days to give my palate time to prepare itself.
