Carmelo Patti Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Member Review by Carrie Larose:

Well integrated tannins with a silky lasting finish, med-full bodied wine. Excellent with cheese, olives and steak. By far the best wine I had in the Mendoza region.

Carmelo Patti:
Carmelo Patti is the Italian-born winemaker of the boutique Argentinian wine Bodega El Lagar in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza.

Carmelo Patti is the Italian-born winemaker of the boutique Argentinian wine Bodega El Lagar in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. He is said to be “...a winemaking legend in Mendoza – very nearly a one-man army, he makes all his wines single-handedly and with all the attention and care of a true master-craftsman.” The “winery” tours take place in his warehouse. There is no tasting room, no vineyard to wander around in. But many visitors have described their positive experience chatting with him personally about his wines and getting an insight into his techniques (one of which is to “hold” the wine for 4-5 years before release, when he decides it’s “ready.”). And of course tasting the wines.  Read less

In seven months In Argentina, I tried nothing comparable to Señor Carmelo's Cab. I feel horribly guilty, because I drank up a bottle meant for sharing with My friend, restaurateur Christophe Gourdain, all by myself. Perfectly balanced & complex, the blackcurrant is enlivened by subtle mentholated typicity. I'll have to find a few bottles to share & to put away.

Typical cabernet aromas, blackcurrants with a touch of woody spice. In the mouth it shows a charming rustic quality, loads of herby notes, with a black olive minerality. Lovely smooth tannins, v good length. A really delightful wine.

I recently tasted this wine, its really smooth in mouth, with correct tannins. I had to deal with a deffected cork ( maybe a wrong conservation ) but i won finally. The rustic quality doesnt work for me, i preferred for this price something like Navarro Correo Alegoria Cabernet 2005, with more complexity.
