2008 Carmelo Patti "Gran Assemblage" Lujan de Cuyo

SKU #1288515 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2008 Gran Assemblage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the same vineyard in Perdriel where the winemaker, year after year, sources the grapes for all his wines. The nose transported me to a past era of classic wines with evolved, tertiary aromas of cured meat, paprika, brick dust and something honeyed, reminiscent of pollen. The palate is polished with earthy Cabernet tannins and pungent flavors that are very tasty and have a classic, austere finish. Back to the future with Carmelo! (AG)  (8/2015)

K&L Notes

Produced from one of THE legends in Mendoza, Carmelo Patti's gran assemblage is a block selection of Cabernet, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from his Perdriel district vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo.This is a richly fruited, vibrant wine, with nicely balanced, elegant toast complementing mixed berry fruits. Very good presence and intensity on the mid-palate and a nicely lingering finish as well. Some of Carmelo's younger colleagues, even with their international work experience and admirable resumes, would be well advised to come here, taste and take notes on how the master does it! This is great Argentine wine. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentine and Chilean wine buyer)

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
