Meet the luscious and extremely likeable red which is the Bodega Norton Privada red blend. It is ridiculously well priced for this rating... It's an ambitious Bordeaux-style blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which will wake your taste buds right up as you sip your first glass. Try it with grilled chard, sausage and Manchego cheese flatbreads. Hola delicioso. As for  what's to come next, keep in mind the hints of smoke, as well as the dark berry flavors in this Argentine red. Beef, lamb, game and steak are all great choices. A classic option is a grilled filet mignon topped with creamy blue cheese. Sea salt oven-roasted potatoes with the steak will make the match with this Bodega Norton even better. Braised rabbit with fennel, tomatoes and shallots will bring out the lovely aromatic complexity of this Malbec blend. Our hands down favorite is a tapenade-stuffed, roasted leg of lamb. It just may make you forget your troubles... If it does, you'll want to open some more Privada to celebrate. Fill your glasses once more and savor them with an aged Cashel blue cheese. It has a voluptuously creamy texture with a delicious blue tang which is perfect for the rich palate and lovely, long finish of this Norton. Ready to get your Olé on, winelovers?!

Decanter: Awarded Platinum, Best Argentinian Red Blend. "Sweet, ripe black fruits on the nose with mixed spices. Generous attack of ripe dark red fruits on the palate interwoven with sweet spices and smoke, oak character and a lingering, fleshy finish." Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2017

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. A blend of malbec, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Drink in 2022." Jan 2019

Winery: "A deep red blend with rich aromas of black berries. Rich, smooth and elegant. With a lingering finish given by the integration of its three blends.

The name “privada” refers to the family’s private reserve, originally enjoyed with only our closest friends. Now, we have reserved some of this harmonius blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to share with you."
