Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2006
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 expose the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds. The Reserva Malbec is an intesne red colour with purple hints. It is rounded and velvety, with notes of ripe black fruits, violets, pices and tobacco. It has a long and complex finish.
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.
My Rating: 90 points. Very elegant body with well balanced fruit aromas, hint of bitter in the aftertaste. Nose is very long with no special characteristics to stick out, just nice!! Costco for 11 $ after 2 Dollars off.
I didn't drink from this bottle, but it received rave reviews from my wive and guests.
Not very complex nose,but a huge fruit in cedar. This is a dark delicious nectar.
Vibrant dark purple color, gentle aroma of berries - taste filled with waves of blue/blackberries - followed a hint of spice aftertastes, decent tannic finish as well - a great value as one should be able to locate this wine for under $20
This amazing Argentinian wine was the piece de resistance of our 8 course asian fusion New's Eve dinner. I should mention that it was enjoyed, while juxtaposed with acceptable champagne.
Really good. Definitely serve to guests!
Enjoyed the toasty, smooth finish. Strong but not full of alcolohol on the bouquet. Very pleasant
External Reviews for Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec Mendoza Argentina
Very ripe and very primal still, delivering a large core of velvety-textured raspberry, fig and boysenberry fruit that is liberally laced with dark toast, pastis and roasted vanilla. Should settle in nicely with modest cellaring, as the structure is dense, but polished and integrated. Drink now through 2011.
Full ruby. Sexy claret-like aromas of plum, currant, graphite and chocolatey oak. Sweet and easygoing, with plum and currant fruit complemented by oak. In a slightly reductive style, finishing with broad tannins and a touch of oaky bitterness.
Rich red in color with purple hints. Expressive ripe black fruit, violet, spice and tobacco aromas. Very broad on the palate, meaty and of persistent finish.
A true no-complaints style of wine. It shines a brilliant purple and delivers telltale vanilla and creamy aromas along with medium-depth plum, berry and oak flavors. The palate is slightly narrow but there's enough flesh, body, texture and balance for it to rank as a winner. Delivers all that a Malbec in this price range should.
As dense and hedonistic as pecan pie, this malbec offers plenty of caramel and dry fruit aromas. Despite its weight, the alcohol and tannins feel integrated. Save it for winter drinking.
Very creamy, with lush layers of fig, currant and blackberry followed by cocoa, mocha and licorice notes on the showy finish. Fine focus and structure. Drink now through 2008.
