A blend of Bonarda with 40% Malbec, both from San Carlos, Uco Valley, that spent nine months in French and American oak (60/40), one-fifth new. Bright violet in color. The aromas include pine and resin notes along with blackberries, plums and violets. A straightforward, sun-kissed wine that presents a flavorful palate, gentle tannins and a fleshy, fluid flow. Expressive with a sustained floral aftertaste.

A dark, saturated color backed by aromas of cinnamon, oak grain, dry earth and black currant open this blend of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec. Like the nose, this Uco Valley marriage is full and saturated on the palate. Slightly salty, minerally flavors of black plum sharpened by red currant end with an herbal hint of tomato.

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.

Region: Cuyo

Undoubtedly the most important viticultural region of the country of Argentina is Cuyo, the arid and red-soiled area within central-west Argentina which produces over eighty percent of the nation's wine each year. Cuyo represents the finest aspects of Argentinian wine making, with wineries in the region celebrating their traditions which stretch back to the sacramental wines first introduced to the country by Spanish settlers hundreds of years ago. As with much of Argentina, Cuyo is most famous for the production of Malbec wines, with Malbec grapes thriving prodigiously in the hot climate of the region, reaching full ripeness in ways they rarely could in their native France, and producing wines of exceptional flavor and quality. The Desaguadero River is the key water source in this otherwise dry and dusty region, and successful irrigation projects have helped bring water to even the driest vineyards within Cuyo.

Country: Argentina

As the world's fifth largest producer of wine, after France, Italy, Spain and the United States, Argentina has plenty to offer the international wine market in regards to both quantity and quality. Despite this being the case for several decades now, it has only been since the end of the twentieth century that the Argentinian wine industry has really begun to up their game when it comes to the methods and techniques required to produce world class wines, which are both representative of their country and region of origin, and which stand alone as complex, interesting and delicious wines to drink. As Argentina became a serious contender in the international wine market, wineries previously concerned primarily with high volumes began to change their priorities, and formerly struggling small bodegas and independent wineries began to find success. Nowadays, well crafted wines from smaller vineyards in Argentina are being lauded as some of the finest in the world, and the country is starting to reap the benefits of its heritage, which include some very old vines, and up to four centuries of experience in wine production.
