Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Perdriel Coleccion Cabernet Sauvignon has a tightly wound bouquet of raspberry, dark berry fruit, cold black tea and mint that needs just a little more nuance. The palate is well-balanced with fine, supple tannins. It is focused and demonstrates good weight and structure, especially on the finish with clean, lifted blackberry, raspberry and crushed stone notes. This is a classy Cabernet for mid-term consumption. Drink now-2018.
Norton formed the introduction for this writer to Argentinean wine during the 1990s. It was founded by Edmund James Palmer Norton who imported and planted French cuttings back in the 19th century. The company now owns five vineyards over Mendoza that includes the original parcel in Perdriel and they continue to produce a reliable portfolio that often represents fine value."~Neal Martin, Oct 2012

Just delicious and at an terrifically gentle price to boot! The Bodega Norton umbrella encompasses the Finca Perdriel estate, and they know how to do great wine at a great value... At 100% Cabernet, this Finca Perdriel Colección Cabernet Sauvignon will start the meal like a pro next to a full-flavored cheese like Cashel Blue. Ever had it with lavender honey drizzled on it? You won't soon forget it... If you make it past the cheese course, your options are almost endless. The many dark fruit nuances allow this Argentine red to work well with less powerful but still hearty meats. Duck and pork are good options, along with the tried-and-true lamb, beef and steak which traditionally accompany a Cabernet. Because of the lovely tannins, we suggest grilling your meat. The sharp hit of that charred edge of grilled steak or duck will balance these fruity notes beautifully. Time to stock up on some easy-drinking reds for those late Spring meals outside winelovers!!
