This wine blog contains my amateur reviews of wines that I have tried from around the world. Many of the reviews are based on a single bottle, which may or may not truly represent the wine. I welcome all comments. Cheers! Zum Wohl! Prost! Salud!

Bodega Norton Malbec 2006
I was given a bottle of the 2006 Norton Malbec from Argentina the other night and opened it while our guests were here. It has a strawberry nose with a little smokiness. Upon first taste, it hits you like berry cough syrup. I was hoping that it would be better the next day, but it wasn't. Retails for about $10.00. This is a definite pass!! If you can find the Norton Malbec Reserve, pick it up instead.
