Wine Spectator:

#36 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013!
"Toasty yet ripe, showing ample mesquite and mocha notes to the raspberry ganache and rich plum fruit. Silky tannins line the dark, cream-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 60,000 cases imported. -NW" (11/13)

Product Description:

WINE:
"Deep red colour with hints of purple. Expressive on the nose with notes of ripe black fruits, violets, and tobacco. Long finish. Can age for 8 years." -Winery

WINERY:
"In 1895, Edmund James Palmer Norton first set eyes on Mendoza countryside during the construction of a train line that joined Mendoza and Chile. Very impressed by the terroir, he founded Bodega Norton, south of the Mendoza River, with a plantation of vines imported from France."

"In 1985, the Austrian businessman Gernot Langes-Swarovski bought Bodega Norton after sensing the great potential of Argentina to influence the world scene. Struck by the beauty of the area and the optimal conditions for growing grapes, he chose Bodega Norton because it was the only traditional winery surrounded by its own vineyard."

"Gernot Langes-Swarovski's son, Michael Halstrick, initiated a new phase, aided by significant investments, modernization and growth, that would prepare them for their big international expansion. During the 90's Bodega Norton started exporting high quality wines, becoming one of the first wineries to develop export markets." -Winery

This was also rated 88 points by both the Wine Advocate and the Wine Enthusiast.
