Patria "Avoyelles" Napa Valley Red Wine 2013
Winemaker Tony Biagi's own label. Oakville Ranch (eastern Napa Valley hillside) 53% Cabernet Franc, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. "Flirting with perfection. A fascinating blend...full-bodied with a magnificent nose of blueberry liqueur, violets, forest floor, graphite and some subtle oak. The wine is dense, full-bodied, multi-dimensional, and just a fabulously rich, ripe, complex wine. Drink it over the next 20 years." Robert Parker, December 2015 PATRIA: ONE'S NATIVE COUNTRY OR HOMELAND.
