Norton's Reserva wines are characterized by elegance and complexity. Made from 15 to 30 year old vineyards in both Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, each selected for their unique character, grapes are hand-harvested, and wines are aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and an additional 6 months in bottles before release. The Reserva wines are a harmonious marriage of terroirs, integrating textures, fruit character, and the spice of oak aging for a seamless experience.

Tasting Note
Aromatic and expressive with ripe black fruits, violets, cinnamon, and clove. On the palate it is full bodied, silky in texture, with flavors of black cherry, plum, blueberry, and fig. Fine tannins are well-integrated, into a long finish.
