The 2010 Patriota is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Bonarda aged for 12
months in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color,
it sports an enticing nose of Asian spices, incense, lavender, plum, and
blueberry. In the glass it opens to reveal a ripe, plush, savory wine
with no hard edges. Drink this well-balanced, lengthy wine over the next
5-6 years. It is also an outstanding value.
