Bodega Norton Privada 2018
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
The 2018 Privada Family Blend Norton is a blend of 40% Malbec, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from Luján de Cuyo and was aged for 16 months in French barrels. Dark purple in the glass, the nose offers notes of fresh plum, mint and violets with white pepper and secondary woody notes such as cedar and vanilla. Intense on the palate, it's juicy with fine, still reactive tannins that will evolve to lend a velvety texture.
Direct and fresh-tasting, this red is dominated by dried cherry and berry flavors that are backed by crisp acidity, with dried, leafy accents midpalate that extend on the moderately tannic finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 40,000 cases made, 7,700 cases imported.
