Raj Patel, the proud owner of Patel’s red wine, originally hails from Gujarat and immigrated to the United States in the 1970s. Settling with his family in northern California, Raj’s journey into the world of fine wines began during his time as a student at the University of California, Davis. It was there that he embarked on an internship at the renowned Robert Mondavi Winery, igniting his passion for exceptional wine.

In the 2000s, he embarked on his winemaking journey and introduced a limited production of 100 cases of a remarkable 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon under the prestigious PATEL Wines label. This exceptional creation garnered high acclaim, receiving an impressive 95 rating from renowned wine critic Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate. Subsequently, consecutive vintages of PATEL Wines earned scores of 94 or higher, solidifying their reputation for excellence as recognized by The Wine Advocate.

With dedication and passion, Patel’s winery now produces 1,000 cases of these exceptional wines, all of which consistently sell out each year, as reported by BT.

The exquisite PATEL Red Wine Blend 2019 served to the guests originates from a distinguished winery nestled in the beautiful Napa Valley.

The wine’s profile is enhanced by a multitude of velvety, plush tannins complemented by a solid foundation of refreshing acidity. Its lingering finish unveils layers of minerality, savory crushed herbs, and elegant dried red florals. The forefront is adorned with vibrant red-toned fruit, enticing spice, pomegranate, and hints of mocha. This enticing blend, primarily composed of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, presents an abundance of charm. The silky texture and supple fruit of the 2019 vintage make it an absolute delight to taste.
