As the founding father of our family ranch, Gaetano Regusci deserves a wine with as much strength, fortitude and guts as he had. So we make Patriarch, an ultra-premium proprietary blend handcrafted from our ranch’s best Bordeaux fruit.
The 2013 Patriarch boasts the intensity of its predecessor, but taken up a notch…or maybe two. On the nose, find sweet, red fruit with loads of spice, vanilla, BBQ smoke and gooey molasses. On the palate, this complexity of this wine shines, with layers of red fruit, dark spices, vanilla, cedar, leather and baking spice. The palate texture is predictably big and masculine, but with an astute elegance that leads to a nearly endless finish.
Year after year, our Patriarch continues to deliver a wine that is consistently drinkable (especially with a good decanting), but will also reward cellaring.
