Bodega Norton 2010 Reserva Malbec - 90+pts

Bodega Norton 2010 Reserva Malbec (Luján de Cuyo) Mendoza - Argentina

: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $18-20
Alcohol: 14.5%
Date Tasted: October 20th, 2013

Tasting Notes: Warm, inviting and layered, the Reserva from Bodegas Norton is the Malbec for lovers of red wines with character, a sense of place and bold fruit but without the residual sweetness all too common among red wines these days. Smooth, ripe blue fruit aromas mingle on the nose with lightly toasted oak, vanilla and soothing spice notes. The palate begins with a nice hit of berry fruit transitioning to savoury-oak flavours through to the long, well balanced and mouth-watering finish where mineral and spice linger. Ready to go now, but should improve some over the next 2-3 years. Drink now-2017.
