This succeeds the 2008 Jezza and is the first Cabernet Merlot since then to meet the standard of Patina's Signature red blend. This Bordeaux style blend is 75% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petite Verdot. You don’t need to be in a hurry with this wine as it will age incredibly well.
95 POINTS The wine is full-bodied, rich and soft in the mouth, showing good concentration, charm, a fruit-sweet centre and detailed flavour. Red fruits predominate. Some tobacco, but there is no green leafiness per se. Delicious concentration, sumptuous multi-faceted flavour and oodles of charm. HUON HOOKE, May 2019
