Bodega Norton Malbec Luján de Cuyo Reserva 2004
The climate at these altitudes is characterized by warm days and cool nights. This allows the grapes to mature slowly towards perfect ripeness, providing deep colour, intense aromas and rich flavours. This fresh and fruity wine invites you to discover the unique characteristics of its grape variety. Alcohol 12,8% Total Acidity 5.66 g/l PH 3.47 Reductive sugar 2,08 Average Brix at harvest 24*
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
The little wooden guy shrugs- not great, not bad, and a pretty good price. What's not to like? ... For the complete two day tasting, go to 2 Days per Bottle (http://2daysperbottle.blogspot.com/2008/07/norton-reserva-malbec-2004.html).
Very smooth. Excellent value for the dollar. Interesting taste which makes it much more interesting than a restaurant house wine.
This was a really smooth wine with moderate but silky tanins. I had it with some salt lick BBQ and it paired very well. It had a spicy note to it so it held up well to the BBQ sauce. Aromas of black current dominated this wine.
