Overview The Cabernet was just one of four Norton wines to make last year’s cut for The Wine Trials and contribute to the producer’s victory as Winery of the Year. Located in Luján de Cuyo in Mendoza, the British-Swiss-run winery is producing some of the most widely available Argentine wines in the US market. Combine that with their booming enotourism business, and you can’t question their winemaking skills—or their marketing savvy.

Nose It’s definitely woodsy. One blind taster even called this wine foxy.

Mouth It’s elegant and balanced, with chocolate and pepper. Underneath, there’s a layer of supporting fruit that’s subtle and delicious.
