This elegant full-bodied wine, made with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from old vines in Luján de Cuyo, offers plenty of black cherry and blackberry aromas with a touch of black pepper on the nose. Well-integrated and silky tannins frame the flavorful palate. Intense black fruit and spice notes are balanced by nice acidity. It has a pleasant and lingering finish.
Direct and fresh-tasting, this red is dominated by dried cherry and berry flavors that are backed by crisp acidity, with dried, leafy accents midpalate that extend on the moderately tannic finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Norton’s signature midtier blend rarely disappoints, and even in a wet and cold vintage like 2016 this delivers the power and fullness one expects from Argentina. Aromas of cool earth, crushed vitamins, blackberry and dark plum are reduced at first. This is full, chunky and extracted in feel, with blackberry and cassis flavors backed by herbal notes.
