Bodega Norton Privada 2015
Wine & SpiritsPrivada, Norton’s flagship, used to be a big wine, concentrated in ripe fruit and well oaked, but this new vintage shows a new direction for the company, one of the largest producers in Argentina. A blend of 40 percent malbec, 30 percent merlot and 30 percent cabernet sauvignon from different areas of Mendoza, this is crunchy and vibrant in its ripe red fruit flavors, the mineral tones giving it depth and dimension. Radiant and young, with firm tannins and acidity, it will stand up well to grilled steak with chimichurri sauce.
James SucklingA serious red with blackberry, blueberry and mineral aromas. Full body, silky tannins and a long finish. A blend of malbec, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold until 2018.
Wine SpectatorA rich chocolaty aroma leads to deeply spiced flavors of dark plum, kirsch and mocha. Creamy midpalate, with a finish that is filled with notes of cocoa powder and raspberry. Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wine EnthusiastRipe blackberry and black cherry aromas are a touch candied, with a mulchy hint of tree bark lending earthiness. The palate on this Bordeaux blend is full and lush, with a beam of tartaric acidity. Blackberry and cassis flavors weigh in by the ton, while this is toasty and coffee-flavored on a calm, bulky finish.
