Carmelo Patti Red Blend Gran Assemblage 2003

Member Review by ilikerice:

Even decanted and with asado steak I watched being cooked in Mendoza, this one gets docked because I compared it to the 2003. Carmelo Patti definitely shows his love with this remarkably complex blend. Markedly complex and gratifying, it remains quite unlike any other similar blends that I've enjoyed. Have with game or otherwise [char]grilled red meat. It will certainly remain the centerpiece!

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

I opened a bottle of the 2002 tonight. I didn't decant it but let it breathe for an hr or more. It's drinkable but I think it is rapidly going "over the hill". Maybe the other half of the bottle will have opened up by tomorrow night.
