Big and powerful, driven by an extracted core of gutsy blackberry, cedary oak, dried herb and anise notes, ending with a full-fisted mix of tannins and earth elements. Drink now through 2030.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is bold, direct and powerful, with considerable intensity and tannic clout to back it up. Black stone fruits, lavender, spice and new leather all hit the palate in this intense, powerful, brooding wine. The Napa Valley Cabernet is a touch brawny, but solid. ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
Black cherry, violet, lavender and cloves race across the palate in Patel's 2013 Malbec. Silky and ripe to the core, the 2013 shows the more opulent side of Malbec. I would prefer to drink the 2013 young, while the flavors are exuberant and vibrant, just as they are today. Drink 2017-2023. ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

The 2013 Red Blend is dark, fleshy and succulent, with gorgeous up-front fruit and terrific overall balance. Sweet red cherry, plum, pomegranate and spice notes are all pushed forward. The ripe, voluptuous style holds plenty of near and medium-term appeal. Drink 2016-2025. ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

The 2012 PATEL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect balance of power and elegance and is a true reflection of the focus of fruit for which the 2012 vintage, call "classic" and "perfect" by many, will be known for decades to come.

For the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, we chose to showcase fruit from Tourmaline Vineyards in Coombsville and the McFadden Vineyard in the Atlas Peak AVA, with a touch of Petit Verdot and Malbec sourced from the Hossfeld Vineyards, tucked high among the craggy peaks of the Stags Leap District. This pairing of cool-region and mountain fruit offers layers of dark fruit, mouth-watering acid and a long, rich finish. The addition of Merlot complements the mid-palate while softening the wine’s profile; Petit Verdot adds color depth and tannin; and the Cabernet Franc and Malbec provide a lush, elegant mouth-feel, rich layers of dark fruit and powerful aromatics.
The PATEL 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed in its youth with a little decanting, or cellared for enjoyment in years to come.
Our 2012 Red Wine continues our pursuit of excellence in Right Bank Bordeaux-style wines. The 2012 Red Blend PATEL is quite a bit deeper and more expressive. Darker tonalities of fruit meld into spice, lavender and new leather. This blend of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot is absolutely delicious and approachable today.

For our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, winemaker chose to showcase fruit from Tourmaline Vineyards in Coombsville and the McFadden Vineyard in the Atlas Peak AVA, and finish it with the touches of Malbec from the Las Cerezas Vineyard in Yountville and Petit Verdot hailing from the Hossfeld Vineyards, tucked high among the craggy peaks of the Stags Leap District.
This pairing of cool-region and mountain fruit offers layers of dark fruit, mouth-watering acid and a long, rich finish. The addition of Merlot complements the mid-palate while softening the wine’s profile, Petit Verdot adds color depth and tannin, and Malbec provides a lush, elegant mouthfeel and rich layers of cherry. The PATEL 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed in its youth (although we suggest decanting an hour or so before), or cellared for enjoyment in years to come.
