2014 Norton Reserve Malbec

About a year ago I wrote about the 2015 Norton Reserve Malbec. and I really liked it. So the other day when I was in a local wine shop and discovered a bottle of the 2014 vintage on the shelf, I decided to take a backwards tasting and compare the two. A little hard to compare, since this bottle was now two years older than the one I tasted a year ago, but I will just say that I made a great choice!

The color is a deep red with purple on the edges. The flavors are bold and enticing with gobs of dark berry coupled with intense black cherry. The structure has layers of chocolate, spicy oak, and mellow tannins sailing on to the finish. The wine leaves a lingering aftertaste which beckons to the next sip. The alcohol content is 14%, and Norm's score is 91.

We burned a thick t-bone on the grill to enjoy with this wonderful bottle of wine. I would give the 2015 vintage a slight nod, but that is a point which could be argued from either side.

score: 91

price: $13 - $17
