Day #296 of the year.

Norton Privada Family Blend 2016

It’s time to take a virtual trip down south. The days are running one into another, month seven of work-from-home days, and I’ve been craving travel plans to look forward to (who hasn’t?). Since we can’t be much of anywhere in person, take a sip of this delicious Argentinian red blend and pretend you’re soaking up the sun down in Mendoza with a juicy steak in front of you. This Malbec, Cab, Merlot blend is quite elegant and would also pair nicely with a fancy mushroom sausage lasagna—‘cause why not go gourmet tonight? We’re almost to Friday, and that’s something to raise a glass to!

Tasting Notes

A deep red blend with rich aromas of black berries. Rich, smooth, and elegant with a lingering finish given by the integration of the wine's three grape varieties.
