Bodega Norton Altura Cabernet Franc 2017

The Bodega Norton Altura range of wines was inspired by the connection between soil and elevation and microclimate in a special vineyard located in Uco Valley in Mendoza. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels the Altura Cabernet Franc displays wild freshness with a hint of mint and spiced notes. Its complexity, bold structure and velvety finish convey the extreme conditions of the terroir.

"An intense black color is telling, as are aromas of blackberry, olive and charcoal. A giant palate is plush and tannic, while black fruit flavors explode alongside chocolate and toast. This is an excellent modern Cab Franc from Argentina and an example of why wineries like Norton are giving the grape its due. Drink through 2029."
