Only 192 cases of this gem were produced!  The 2009 Cabernet offers a very deep dark hue with amazing aromatics.  Aromas of ripe blackberry and black currant jump out of the glass on impact.  This is a multidimensional wine that is packed with lush flavors of black stone fruit, a touch of chocolate and well-integrated notes of toasty vanilla.  The wine is very complex and transitions gorgeously from the entry through the mid-palate into a long lingering finish thanks to the wine’s silky tannin structure.  Sourced from two amazing vineyards in Coombsville and Atlas Peak, this gem will not be around for long!

Parker Review 94+ Points: “A dark, brooding beauty, Patel’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is strikingly beautiful. Endless nuances of dark fruit, exotic spices, cinnamon, mocha and espresso take shape as the 2009 opens up in the glass. This dense, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with pure class and personality. The 2009 has developed far better than I envisioned when I first tasted it last year. This is a dazzling showing. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2029.”

The 2010 Patel Red blend is a tribute to the Right Bank (Pomerol).  In keeping with the Right Bank tradition, this wine is a blend of 70% Merlot, 14% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot.   It has a deep dark red hue and intense aromatics.  The intense nose expresses a lovely combination of red and black stone fruits, with subtle, integrated toasty vanilla notes adding layers of complexity to the aromatic profile. On the palate, this will is refined, well-balanced and nicely structured.  Tons of intensity that compliments the silky tannin level and frames the long finish.  Only 300 cases produced!

Parker Review 92 Points: “The Merlot-based 2010 Red Wine Patel wraps around the palate with gorgeous textural finesse and elegance. Super ripe black currants, violets and cinnamon all come to life in this juicy, exuberant wine. The Red Wine is made in an approachable style meant to be enjoyed pretty much upon release, so there is a premium on forward fruit over the structure of the vintage. Another year or two in bottle should help the baby fat drop off. The blend is 70% Merlot, 14% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.”
