Norton's proprietary house blend features a sensuous mix of Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec, all from the scintillating '02 harvest. This is one of the best wines Norton has made in ages, if not in its history. Tobacco, tar and chocolate aromas accent the deep, saturated bouquet. And the flavors and feel are pure New World in that ripeness and drinkability take precedence over complexity.
