We’ve been lucky enough to have a good run of wine recently, but unfortunately all good things have to come to an end; for us it was with the red La Patrie, a Malbec from France.
The label is what you would expect from a French wine with the traditional picture of a chateau. The smell is actually very nice, it being light and fruity, as well as full of promise!
The reality was not good though, both without and with good. The taste was corky, bland, acidic and a little bit sharp. For my wife and I, it was like we were back at university and drinking generic red wine.
I cannot recommend this wine at all and would advise you to avoid.
