“As traditional as it gets, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was kept in the winery until Patti thought the wine was ready to drink. He's in search of an elegant, classical and polished wine that still keeps the varietal character but does not show the effect of the wood. The color, aromas and flavors are quite developed, nuanced and polished, with complexity and detail. It does have the herbal and spicy character of the grape (all the textbook descriptors are there: tobacco, forest floor, something herbal) and the warmth of the vintage and the place. It's harmonious, with moderate alcohol and good freshness. It's just delicious, like a trip to the past.“ ~ LG

View all from Carmelo Patti
Carmelo PattiCarmelo Patti's wines have something of a cult following with devoted fans in Argentina and abroad. "I don't want to [make wine] for commercial reasons," says Patti, who only has one employee. Patti was an important force for the rebirth of fine wine production in Mendoza in the eighties and ito this day is one of the most respected enologists and winemakers in the country. His winemaking style is as unique as his character; no consultants, no manipulation, no pretentions. Carmelo simply does what he does best, and wine-loving consumers beat a path to his door. He defines his wines as "a classic style, a naked wine, without anything that can cover it up," and he insists on holding all wine until he deems it ready for release which can be 4-5 years after harvest at the soonest for reds. Nothing you have tasted from Argentina quite prepares you for the complex, wild flavors of this traditional, old-school Malbec.
