A Fantastic Award Winning Malbec – For Only $10!

The vibrant ruby red, almost purple color that immediately fills each glass of the 2007 Bodega Norton Reserve Malbec lets you know right away that you are in for a serious glass of wine. Aromas of dark berries and vanilla  grab your senses as the first drink reminds you that even a very good Malbec can benefit from a few minutes to breathe.

As the has a few minutes to settle, this award winning 90 point rated 2007 Argentinean pops with vanilla and fig flavors that contiue to blossom into one of the finest $10 Malbecs on the market today.

As you pour through the bottle the vanilla and earthy tones give way to a more tannin, dry sensation that is surprisingly nice and strong for a wine of this price. With 61,000 cases imported into the United States, the 2007 will not last long as a super value offering at America’s largest discount warehouse.

Costco has helped to ensure this wine makes many appearances during upcoming holiday parties by offering a special discounted price for the wine, however, even at the full price of $13, the 2007 is worth every penny.

Be sure to remember to slightly chill before serving – the optimal serving temperature for a full bodied red like this is between 60 to 62 degrees, or approximately 10 degrees cooler than the average winterized home. 15 minutes in the refrigerator before you plan to pop the cork and serve should do the trick nicely.
