“Finca Decero’s evocatively named cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and a little Tannat is now into its second edition. The Petit Verdot
provides lots of structure here, giving backbone to the sweet, succulent dark berry fruit. Fresh acidity cleans the palate and lengthens the finish.”
“Indicative of the shift in style at Norton under David Bonomi, this is intensely aromatic, yet built to age with sappy, floral scents, rich blueberry and pastille flavours, dense tannins and effortless old vine concentration. The 100% new oak is deftly done.”

“Every bit as good as the superb 2012, this scented, stylish Perdriel blend of Malbec with 20% each of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, is rich, spicy and dense, unfurling aromas of thyme and rosemary in the glass, with herbal, grassy nuances, plenty of colour and well-handled 100% new oak.”
“Finca Decero is making increasingly refined wines under Tommy Hughes. This Alto Agrelo Cabernet, produced from vines close to the road to Chile, sees 20% new oak and is a typically fresh, polished red, showing scented cinnamon spice and fine cassis fruit.”

“Norton’s impressive Privada Malbec combines grapes from Vistalba, Las Compuertas, Perdriel and Agrelo to produce a delicious example of the variety from Mendoza’s so-called “first zone”. Assertive, youthful and highly aromatic, this handles its 100% new oak with aplomb. Dense and sweet, with tangy underlying acidity.”
A round, voluptuous Merlot with plum and cherry aromas, the oak adds a touch of spicy complexity.

Nose of ripe berries, black berries, cherries and a subtle aroma of violets that are in perfect harmony with hints of cocoa and spices. Good structure and volume as a result of its tannins, and long lasting mouthfeel reminiscent of black fruit and spices. Velvety palate, balanced acidity that adds freshness, and a mineral touch that increases the wines complexity.
