2016 Bodega Norton 'Lote Negro' Unique Edition Uco Valley Argentina

$39.99 USD

The first wine produced exclusively with grapes from the Valle de Uco is now in its second vintage, the 2016 Lote Negro has a very classical profile and is a blend of Malbec from Chacayes with some 40% Cabernet Franc from Los Árboles. It fermented in concrete vats and matured in barriques for 12 months. It has somewhat of a peachy nose, with great freshness, hints of blood oranges and spices, aromatic and balsamic, open, clean, subtle and complex. It has a medium-bodied palate and a textured mouthfeel, with fine tannins and a long, dry finish.
