Norton Privada 2010

I reviewed the 2009 vintage of this blend from Norton the other day, and the 2010 vintage is pretty good too.  A blend of malbec, merlot and cabernet sauvignon from Mendoza in Argentina, there are aromatics of red plum, spice and blueberry.  The palate has a medium length finish with reminders of plum and black cherry.  This is a very balanced and drinkable wine that is ready to drink now.  Good
