Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
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.

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.

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
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

Situated in and around the Andean mountains, the Cuyo region of Argentina has long been associated with the best of the country's wine industry. Including now world famous provinces such as Mendoza and La Rioja, Argentina's Cuyo region has something of an ideal environment for the cultivation of high quality grapes – including Argentina's flagship varietal, the Malbec – which includes the beautiful Desaguadero River and its tributaries. Although the region itself is quite dry and arid, the soils have a remarkably high mineral content, and plenty of iron which gives it the distinctive red color associated with Cuyo. For several decades now, wineries in Cuyo have been booming, as more and more of the global wine audience begin to recognize the region's remarkable potential for rich and flavorful wines.

Country: Argentina

Anyone who has been the Mendoza area of Argentina may be surprised to find that this is one of the primary wine regions of the country, now comfortably sitting as the fifth largest producer of wine in the world. The Mendoza is an incredibly dry and arid desert, which receives as little as two hundred millimeters of rainfall per year, and supports very little life at all. We can thank the ancient technologies of the Huarpes Indians for Argentina's current booming wine trade, as they managed to irrigate the region by digging channels from the Mendoza river, thus creating an area which had enough access to water with which to grow vines. Not only this, but the grape which Argentina primarily uses for their wines – Malbec – actually flourishes in such conditions, as it is less likely to suffer from the rot it so often finds in the considerably damper regions of Europe it has its origins in. Such expertise and foresight has resulted in Argentina being able to produce high quality wines of both red and white types, with Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon dominating the vineyards for red wines, and Torrontés, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc making up for most of the white wine produced there.
