    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Reserva" is made from carefully selected grapes from vineyards more than 30 years old. The wine is aged in French oak barrels and then additionally in bottles before release.

    Hand selection of berries.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    I've been wanting to write a review on Argentinian Malbec's for sometime and never really came across one that I could recommend as hardily as the one pictured to the left of your screens. Well I encountered this one last night, Bodega Norton Malbec Reserve 2006 and folks let me tell I was nearly ready to run up to my PC and write this review, right then and there. But after uncorking the bottle a wave of dark black currant wafted delightfully towards me and I knew almost immediately that I had a amazing taste on the way. Just like catching the glimpse of some attractive person on your peripheral vision you just know, a second look will confirm your suspicion, this was the case with this wine, a real stunner! In the glass the core was a dark ruby and fading away to the rim a veil red rose. As I gave it a swirl the aromas of dark cherry, currant, melding harmoniously together. Weighing in at 14% Alc. and funny the winery must have forgot to add that to the label, so the distributor had it lazered on here. After the first sip, it displayed its wonderful bounty of well-layered ripe blackberry and dark plum flavors, with a touch of dark chocolate and a splash of coffee. This wine is well integrated and immediately approachable, while the finish is long and persistent. But a decant time of an hour only enhanced the the experience. This wine demonstrates everything which is wonderful about the Argentinian Malbec, the ability to offer a wine of this caliber for so few dollars! I know when WS and RP get a hold of this wine their review's will mirror my own closely. I would guess they would give it a 92 and I would say I must agree, because the QPR is through the roof! Folks seriously I picked this up @ Costco for a mere $12.89 each. I was totally caught off guard, but enjoyed every swirl, sniff and the very last sip! Once this review is posted folks are going to run not walk to get this gem while it last! I broke open the piggy bank, and rooted around under seat cushions just to acquire a few more.

    A little on the light-bodied side, Norton Malbec Reserve 2006 is fruity with a spicy finish.

    This wine had a strong alcohol taste and also tasted like it was in an oak barrel too long.
