94pointsBodega Norton 2003 Perdriel Single Vineyard Red (Mendoza)

Editors' Choice

As good as it gets from Argentina. Winemaker Jorge Riccitelli has artfully crafted a bruising but lovable modern Bordeaux blend that hits every note on the head. The nose offers black olive, berry essence and a ton of chocolate, while the tannic but balanced palate sports luscious black cherry, cassis and more. For a stud of a wine, it has nuance and character—meaning it's not just a fat fruitball. At 70% Malbec with Merlot and Cabernet, this is the ideal wine for a great steak. Just 250 cases produced.
