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.
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.

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.
