Norton Bodega Malbec2010
Mendoza, Argentina

Norton was my intro into South American wines years ago, and the label remains as reliable as an old pair of jeans. This malbec is a perfect pizza wine, and at just $8 a great value, too. It’s that smoky edge that makes it so special, I think — and a good foil for rich tomato sauce, pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms. Beautiful garnet color, plum and tobacco scented, dry, lingering oak finish that bites back…gently. A fantastic standard for everyday drinking.
