The 2008 Patriota is composed of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec aged in French (40% new) and American (seasoned) oak. Purple/black in color it has a splendid bouquet of cigar box Asian spices lavender black cherry and plum. Full-bodied dense rich and powerful this loaded effort has gobs of flavor succulence and great length. Only hedonists need apply. Drink it over the next six years while it retains its fleshy character.

The nose delivers wood earth blueberries baker's chocolate fresh pepper and espresso. The palate is layered with ample black and red fruit and displays wonderful tannins and balanced acidity. The mid palate is vibrant and smooth while the finish of spice minerals and soft chalk lead to a 30+ second finish. A blend of 2/3 Bonarda and 1/3 Malbec this is a fine display of the quality Mendoza has to offer.
