Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec 2020
The 2020 Reserva Malbec shows the consistency of this bottling, one of the most important wines for Norton. Approximately 50% comes from Valle de Uco and 50% from Luján de Cuyo, and it matured in used barrels for one year. It has good ripeness, balance and elegance, integrated oak and very fine tannins. The consumer for this wine does not want differences from vintage to vintage; they want consistency of quality, and the 2020 is just a little riper than the 2021 that I tasted next to it. 600,000 bottles produced.
This food-friendly wine offers peppercorn, cherry, and a hint of vanilla on the nose. It's medium-bodied with soft tannins, and delivers ripe blackberry flavors with a fresh touch of eucalyptus on the palate. It's a good Malbec for everyday consumption.
