From experienced California winemaker Anthony Biagi and the renowned Kimberly Jones comes Patria. Patria (translates to Homeland) comes from Oakville Ranch, one of the highest-elevation vineyards within Oakville, producing grapes that a complex, flavourful and balanced. The wine itself is a perfect blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Together, these grapes create a wine with fierce complexity, bold structure and plush tannins. Aromatic flavours of blackberry, black licorice, herbes de provence and raspberry cordial followed by flavours of roasted plums, pipe tobacco, black currants and cocoa nibs. Dense and with a long life ahead, if cracking within the next year, give it an hour decant before serving. Serve with your favourite beef short rib recipe or a classic American burger.

Some say Kimberly Jones is the Queen of Napa Valley. We agree, but that's not all she does. With nearly 40 years of experience, Kimberly Jones is California's leading fine wine broker. Not only does she release wine from Napa and California, but she also releases stunning reds and whites from France. These include The Arbelist; a Merlot driven blend from right bank Bordeaux and Operation Dragoon; a Southern Rhone red blend of Grenache and Syrah.
KJ wines deftly merge the best of both California and France in style, offering lush and approachable but also refined and balanced versions sure to please lovers and haters of both regions.
Kensington Wine Market is privileged to be one of the exclusive sources for Kimberly Jones Selections wine since 2016.
