Wine review by Tasting Team member Dr. J. This is our very first review of a wine from Kansas.
My sister came to town for Christmas from Kansas. She mentioned that there was a winery close by and wanted to know if I wanted her to bring me anything. I quickly jumped online to research and said, "Yes! Bring me a Norton."
On the nose was blueberry, blueberry, blueberry...loads of it. If I didn't know better, I'd think this was a blueberry fruit wine. There is once again, loads of blueberry on the palate with spice and pronounced tannins.
This is a deep, dark, and inky wine that is bold and medium to full body. I have had very few Nortons but I have really enjoyed the couple I have had in the past and this was no different.
