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

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

It is said that the first Argentinian vines were planted in the Mendoza more than four hundred years ago by European settlers, and despite these early wines being used primarily for religious purposes, the fervor for wine making never left the area. Today, Argentina is keen to demonstrate its technological prowess when it comes to vineyard cultivation, by combining traditional methods of irrigation left over from the Huarpes Indians with modern techniques in order to make the dry, arid desert an ideal environment for growing grapes. Indeed, these ancient irrigation channels, dug hundreds of years ago and still in use today, bring mineral-rich melt water from the Andes via the Mendoza river, something which gives the grapes grown in this region some of their character. The primary grape of this and other regions of Argentina is the Malbec, which is highly susceptible to rot in its native France, but which thrives in the dry and hot climate of South America, producing rich and plummy wines which are highly drinkable especially when young.
