The 2013 PATEL Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is one of two new AVA designated PATEL Cabernets to be released in Fall 2016. Sourced from the Bennett Vineyard, this inky purple wine is brimming with fruit. Notes of plum and cherry are balanced with bright acidity and the beautiful tannins linger in a long, luscious finish.

2013 is the inaugural vintage for the PATEL Napa Valley Malbec. Sourced from a vineyard that borders South East Yountville and North East Oak Knoll AVA, this wine is evocative of Malbec produced in the Cahors region of Southwest France. Inky, blue-black in the glass with bluebell floral aromas, this wine delights the palate with layered flavors of deep black cherry and coffee bean. Lush, polished tannins round out the long finish.

PATEL 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet is a blend of our Rutherford and Coombsville Vineyards. The wine shows an ultra-deep garnet color in the glass with an expressive nose. The lush palate offers a generous mélange of rich black fruit and mocha, gently interlaced with smooth tannins.

PATEL 2013 Red Wine is our tribute to classic Right Bank Bordeaux-style red wines. Merlot and Petit Verdot make up the majority of the 2013 offering, which gives the wine its rich dark color, floral notes and polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon was added for structure and a velvety mouth-feel. Malbec adds dark fruit flavors and fills out the mid-palate.

The 2014 Cabernet Franc is another striking wine from Bennett Vineyard in Coombsville. Enticing aromatics meld into a core of intense, flamboyant red. Varietal notes come through, but at present the new French oak is a bit dominant. It will be interesting to see how things shape up as the 2014 ages. Drink 2016-2020.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville), from Bennett Vineyard, is a total knock-out. Graphite, menthol, black fruit, lavender, spice and savory herbs make a strong first impression. This is a classic Coombsville Cabernet built on minerality, energy and cool, soil-driven tension. I would give the 2014 a few years in bottle to soften, but it is quite impressive, even at this early stage. The 2014 is a wine of real depth, gravitas and pedigree. Drink 2018-2026.

The 2014 Malbec, from Stagecoach, is superb. Boisterous, exuberant and flamboyant to the core, the Malbec hits the palate with serious fruit intensity. Scents of rose petal, lavender, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center, with more mineral and savory notes develop with time in the glass. This is an especially opulent style with tons of near and medium term appeal. Drink 2016-2022.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a delicious, juicy wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Black cherry, plum, mocha, cloves, new leather and cedar give the 2014 much of its succulent, inviting personality. This is an especially bold, racy style, but it works.   Drink 2017-2026.

The 2014 Proprietary Red exhibits plenty of chocolate, crème de cassis, soft tannins, low acidity and a dense ruby/purple color in a medium-bodied, elegant, fleshy style.  Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford), from Georges III, is supple, silky and nuanced. This is an especially floral, red-toned Cabernet from Georges III. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and rose petals are some of the signatures. Silky, polished tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. There is a lot to like here. This is one of the most finessed, gracious Cabernets from Georges III that I have tasted in some time. Drink 2018-2024.

An elegant wine with aromatics of sweet white flowers, this expression of Sauvignon Blanc is powerful, and anything but typical. Barrel fermentation and aging lends a touch of sweetness, textured mouthfeel and a dry finish, while weaving an intricate and seductive blend of herbs, ripe white peach, and a touch of pineapple. Aging for 14 months in 100% French Oak makes this Sauvignon Blanc rich and pleasing to the palate, with a smooth creamy texture balanced with a hint of spice and refreshing acidity.
