Winemaker's Notes

Boisterous aromas of black raspberries, plums, blueberries, and spices burst from the glass of the 2003 Patriota, a blend of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec. So named because it is produced from the two red cornerstones of Argentina's wine industry, this lush, exquisitely ripe, balanced, hugely flavorful effort conquers the palate with a plethora of spice-laden red and black fruits.

"Like pudding with its thick, creamy layers of plum, blackberry, vanilla and mocha. Round, fleshy and sweet through the finish, with a nice mineral hint to keep it honest. A wine unashamed of its modernity. Bonarda and Malbec."
-Wine Spectator
