Bodega Norton Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also exposes the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the blackskinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, foodfriendly reds. This lovely New World Cabernet offers aromas of ripe fruit: plums, blackberries and strawberries. It has a very good structure, balanced and round, with a long finish.

Not sure I would go out of my way to drink this though the price is about as inexpensive as I can imagine hauling even an empty bottle from Argentina could be -- it's not bad, good enough for today...little oak, not subtle but better than one might for the price. And given the limited wine-list at this hotel is about as good as it's going to get today...
