Patriota 2013
WINE OVERVIEW

As #45 on Wine Spectator’s ‘Top 100 List’ in 2015, this ‘Patriotic’ old-vine Bonarda and Malbec is blended to perfection.

Tasting 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.

Food Pairing

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