Patria is a personal wine label created in 2013 by famed winemaker Tony Biagi with his longtime friend Kimberly Jones. Biagi, a sixth-generation Californian, has been the winemaking talent behind famous Napa and Sonoma names such as Duckhorn, Paraduxx, Neal Family Vineyards, PlumpJack, CADE, Hourglass, and Amici. Biagi also has also consulted for Clos Du Val, Jada, Lasseter, and My Favorite Neighbor.

Biagi always looks for great vineyards to work with in every winery project he's been involved with because he says it makes it easier to craft great wine. Biagi comes from a winemaking family with his father and stepfather both making wines in the 1970s. He took a winemaking class with Anne Noble at UC Davis and found his way into the wine industry with an internship at Hess.

Biagi uses grapes sourced from the Oakville Ranch Vineyard for Patria wines. The vineyard is located on the eastern edge of the Oakville District on a large hillside estate and is approximately 1,300 feet above sea level with red volcanic soils.

Patria Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from talented winemaker Tony Biagi. Culling from his background as winemaker for Duckhorn, Plumpjack, CADE, and many other projects, Biagi started this personal label in 2013 with his friend Kimberly Jones. Biagi selected the Oakville Ranch Vineyard below the prized Weitz Vineyard to source his grapes. The wines show gripping, structured tannins and mineral and tobacco leaf characteristics that reflect their high-altitude, volcanic, hillside terroir.

The Cabernets tend to be concentrated and intense with rich layers or fruit. Due to their structure, the wines are age-worthy and can be enjoyed for decades.

The 2021 Patria Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine from the Napa appellation in California's North Coast region. This wine, produced by Patria, is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, with additions of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. With an alcohol content of 14.8%, it is closed with a cork.

According to Jeb Dunnuck, this vintage marks the first time younger vines have been pulled out to enhance quality. Dunnuck describes it as having a "stunning nose of pure cassis, graphite, crushed stone, darker chocolate, and baking spices." He goes on to say that it is a "full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, yet polished Cabernet Sauvignon with incredible tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish," awarding it a high score of 97 points. Dunnuck also highlights the limited production of only 300 cases, noting it as "one of the great values out there in truly great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon" (jebdunnuck.com).

Vinous also praises the wine, giving it a score of 96 points. They describe the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch as "superb," mentioning its "bright acids and veins of tannin" that contribute to its "potent, brilliant" character. The review emphasizes the wine's "vibrancy and youthful intensity," marking it as a standout in the Oakville Ranch lineup. However, Vinous notes that production is down 40% from previous years (Vinous).

The Wine Independent provides a barrel sample review, rating it between 95 and 97 points. They describe the wine as "deep garnet-purple in color" with "fragrant notes of crushed red and black currants, violets, and tar, with suggestions of black truffles and pencil lead." The palate is "full-bodied" and "filled with energetic black berry and mineral layers," framed by "fine-grained tannins and a lively line," finishing "long and earthy" (The Wine Independent).

Overall, the 2021 Patria Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is highly regarded by multiple reviewers for its complexity, balance, and vibrant character. The limited production adds an element of exclusivity, making it a noteworthy choice for Cabernet Sauvignon enthusiasts.
