Bodega Norton Colección Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Mendoza, Argentina 


My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $9.

 

Bright ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of cherries, strawberries, blueberries, vanilla, oak, leather, green pepper, licorice, beef jerky, spices and black pepper.

Light to medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, vegetables, spices, peppercorn and tobacco.

Short tangy finish with fine grained tannins and cranberries.

This 3 year old is drinking very nicely now. Simple and lightweight, but nicely balanced, unlike a year ago. Soft mouthfeel and easy drinking. By now, it has lost most of its earthiness.

I had it by itself by the pool, chilled.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Mendoza grown at around 3000 ft. elevation.

14% alcohol by volume.
