2007 Bodega Norton Privada Mendoza
|An exquisite Malbec-led red blend from Mendoza that’s big, juicy, spicy and bold, and worth every penny of its $19.49 price tag at Costco. |
There’s a lot going on here, and it’s really well executed. First the blend: 40-Malbec, 30-Cabernet Sauvignon and 30-Merlot. Being from Mendoza, you can taste the best of those in this wine, blended to perfection.
It starts out spicy and earthy on the nose, then a combination of plum and dark fruit flavors, and finishes all over the mouth, just lingering, noteworthy by all accounts. I’m a fan, and highly recommend this bottle, especially for those who already like Mendoza wines. It’s a homerun for $19.
