Patel’s Napa Valley Red Wine is a tribute to the famed Right Bank Bordeaux-style red wines of France (such as those from Pomerol). In keeping with the Right Bank tradition, Merlot makes up the majority of the blend with smaller amounts of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot added to round out the wine.

The 2012 Patel Red Wine is refined and elegant, yet expressive and bold with its ripe fruit flavors and hints of spice. On the nose, the wine is layered with ripe red and black fruits, hints of flowers, and soft, subtle notes of oak. The palate is lush and wonderfully balanced with layers of rich cherry, black fruit, spice, lavender, and leather.
