Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec 2019
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
The peachy and soft 2019 Reserva Malbec has varietal aromas and flavors, a juicy palate with nice balance and a clean and fruit-driven finish with very fine tannins. Very good for the price asked. 600,000 bottles produced. Remarkable.
The 2019 Malbec Norton Reserva from Luján de Cuyo spent 12 months aging in French barrels. An intense purple in hue. The nose offers notes ranging from ripe plum to prunes along with white pepper and aromas from the aging process such as pencil box. Broad with sweet tannins, the flow is languorous but maintains an almost juicy freshness. A generally classical wine, the acidity is a modern touch.
Plum tart and dried raspberry flavors show dried mint notes, with sanguine accents on the firm finish. Drink now. 90,000 cases made, 59,600 cases imported.
