Rich and earthy, with chocolate-covered cherries and enticing accents of leather and exotic spice, this is in Jigar's same easygoing, totally drinkable style. It's a great remedy for the $125 Napa Valley Cabernet blues if we ever saw one! Just a killer deal in Cabernet!
Jigar Patel is the fun-loving mastermind behind this winery, and why wouldn't he be a bon vivant? His first name is a Hindi word for love and affection, courage, heart and one who lives life to the fullest. The winemaker here is Josh Bartels, an alum of Kokomo Winery for over 10 years. Josh met Jigar in college at Purdue University, and the two bonded over a shared love of fine wine. Today they also own Sedition Wines together. The style of these wines is infectious: juicy, fruit-driven, fleshy and low in acid. We had to have them.
