Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

#90 of the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010 "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...90" WS 07/10

The concentrated, focused bouquet is heavy with bittersweet chocolate, and the wine does not disappoint in heft. There’s a kaleidoscopic mix of light and dark flavors, culminating in a clean finish of medium length – quite a stunner from a low-price producer, especially in a difficult vintage.

This is a good, smooth Malbec for the price... The fact that you can pick it up at some costcos makes it convenient, too.

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.

Focused, with cedar and vanilla aromas leading the way for black cherry, currant and cocoa notes. Taut tanins frame the finish. More like a Cabernet than a Malbec. Drink now through 2008.

The 2006 Malbec Reserva is a more saturated color and more expressive aromatically. Ripe and rich on the palate, it has ample tannin to evolve for 2-3 years, impeccable balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It over-delivers for its modest price.

Very toasty, offering showy mocha and spice aromatics, but there's also plenty of flesh, with lush raspberry, fig and plum notes that follow through on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2010.

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.

Glass-coating purple color; slightly roasted character, hint of balsamic, lavender, black fruits.

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.
