90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Patriota is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Bonarda and shows the rusticity of the Bonarda, with some earthy hints and notes of ripe berries with a balsamic core of aromatic herbs. The palate is juicy and there are fine tannins. The two grapes fermented separately, and the wines matured in oak vats; the blend was done after malolactic.

 

Winemaker Notes

Deep reddish purple with aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit. Big body yet very balanced with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together.

A great companion to grilled or smoked meats. Pairs well with beef and pork, and even pizza with meat toppings.

Blend: 60% Bonarda, 40% Malbec
