Province: MendozaNorton Privada Red Blend 2009

Grapes: 40% Malbec, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Aging: 16 months in new French oak

Strong inky aromas, viscosity, and bottomless deep color raise expectations sky-high for this blend from an often pedestrian brand, even in a relatively unremarkable vintage, and the wine delivers. It begins with a high, smoky note and descends through red berries to a long stewed fruit finish. The fulsome texture is impressive throughout. To be savored today or aged for tomorrow.
