 #60 on The Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2018

92 Points The Wine Enthusiast
"Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas are a touch candied, with a mulchy hint of tree bark lending earthiness. The palate on this Bordeaux blend is full and lush, with a beam of tartaric acidity. Blackberry and cassis flavors weigh in by the ton, while this is toasty and coffee-flavored on a calm, bulky finish.
Drink through 2024."

92 Points The Wine Spectator
"A rich chocolaty aroma leads to deeply spiced flavors of dark plum, kirsch and mocha. Creamy mid-palate, with a finish that is filled with notes of cocoa powder and raspberry. 
Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Drink now through 2022."

95 Points James Suckling
"A very intense nose of blackberries, mulberries, violet extract, charcuterie, Indian spices and really flamboyant licorice. Full body, lots of juicy, grainy tannins, tangy acidity, tons of dark plum fruit and a long, chewy finish."

About Bodega Norton..........


Edmund James Palmer Norton first set eyes on Mendoza countryside during the construction of a train line that joined Mendoza and Chile. Very impressed by the terroir, he founded Bodega Norton, south of the Mendoza River, with a plantation of vines imported from France.

The Austrian businessman Gernot Langes-Swarovski bought Bodega Norton after sensing the great potential of Argentina to influence the world scene. Struck by the beauty of the area and the optimal conditions for growing grapes, he chose Bodega Norton because it was the only traditional winery surrounded by mountains.

The People........

One of the chief values of Bodega Norton is taking care of its human resources. Not just because its 350 employees are the real potential of the company, but because all of them bring to life the winery and its wine.
This value was recognized in 2010 by the consulting firm Great Place to Work, which ranks the best companies in which to work: Norton was amongst the first companies (ranked 13), and was the only Winery to appear in this ranking. 
Three key figures in the winery:


Austrian-born, adopted by Mendoza. Business manager, and Bodega Norton CEO since 1991.



(61 years) a winemaker with a lifetime of experience working in renowned wineries. From the classic Gargantini in the early sixties to Etchart Cafayate Winery, where he played a central role in the domestic and international growth of the company. Since 1992 he has been Norton´s Chief Winemaker.



(41 years) is an Agronomist with extensive background in investigative research. He has been with the company since 1997, and currently holds the position of Production Manager, giving him responsibility over the 700 ha of Norton´s Vineyards.
