We believe that great wine is made in the vineyard. Sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Rutherford, and Napa Valley, each PATEL wine is passionately crafted to express the uniqueness of its terroir and exhibit a distinct individual personality. Since our inception in 2007, our singular focus has been to produce the most expressive Bordeaux-varietal wines possible, from Napa Valley's finest vineyards.
Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested at night, pressed whole cluster, then aged on lees for 18 months in 100% French Oak. Barrel fermenting this wine presents a sweet, rich texture integrated with barrel spices. Aromatics of sweet white flowers and a hint of pineapple surround a balanced acidity.
A blend between the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon creates elegant red fruit characteristics including Bing cherry, and red plum.
An elegant wine with floral aromatics, powerful expression, with a smooth creamy texture and refreshing acidity.
Ripe red cherry and plum fruit, plenty of juiciness, wildflowers, cedar, and tobacco.

Dark, powerful, and juicy, with terrific fruit intensity from start to finish. Black cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice, and spice infuse this pliant, super-expressive wine.
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville) is superb. Dark, powerful, and savory, full-bodied, it packs a serious punch.

One of the top sites in the appellation (Georges III). Cedar, tobacco, mint, red cherry, chocolate are vivid in the glass.

This is a dark, sensual wine. Black cherry, mocha, chocolate, leather, and spice all flesh out in a powerful wine that shows the more flamboyant side of the vintage to great effect.

Stagecoach Malbec is dense, powerful and explosive. A host of savory notes play off the rich Malbec fruit nicely, dense, tannic Malbec with a lot of mountain character.
