Greg's Wine Preferences I was first introduced to wine and the appreciation of a good bottle of wine back in the 70s when I started playing professional golf in Europe. I would frequently enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner and since I was playing a great deal of golf in France at the time, we favored French wine. While in Australia, I did try many Aussie wines, but they were not nearly as popular as they are today. I drank Californian wine very infrequently, as I was not a regular in the States. Now, however, it seems all I drink are varietals from Australia or California, as I tend to enjoy their qualities better than wines from other countries. One of my favorite wines is the Australian Reserve Shiraz. It has such a deep, intense flavor, filled with tannins that are pronounced but not overbearing, and a hint of blueberry. Zinfandel is also a personal favorite, and the new Lake County Zinfandel has the spicy, red fruit character style that I particularly enjoy. Only after many years of experimenting with wines from all over the world have I come to understand the characteristics that I most enjoy. In my Chardonnays, I prefer a less dry, less heavy wine with more oak flavor to it. I find that most California and Australian Chardonnays possess this quality. For this reason, I wanted the style of my new Santa Barbara County Chardonnay to be alive with fruit flavors and pair well with many foods. Many people assume that I prefer Australian wine above all others, because that is where Greg Norman Estates originated, but it isn't true. For me it depends on the situation, menu choice and mood. I am more of a casual wine drinker, rather than an intense wine connoisseur, and therefore I drink whatever wine I have a desire for at that moment. Read less

Firm in texture, generous with its peppery blackberry and lime flavors, echoing a minty note as the flavors linger. Drink now through 2006.

Firm, with chewy tannins and lively acidity around a core of smoky black pepper and berry flavors. Best after 2006.

Lithe and generous, a supple red with layers of mint-scented berry and currant flavors, all echoing on a fine-toned, velvety finish. Drink now through 2005.

Dark wood notes and pastry crust in the nose segue into blueberry and chocolate flavors. It's medium-weight and features a food-friendly tartness on the finish. Simple but good.

Lithe, sinewy and well-focused, playing its mint and cedar flavors against a core of black cherry and currant fruit, balancing nicely through the finish. This has presence. Drink now through 2015.

This 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot is a bright ruby red in color. Vibrant and complex aromas of spicy, red berry fruit, red currant, sweet cherry and cranberries preface notes of varietal, leafy blackcurrant fruit, cinnamon and clove spice. The same abundant, vibrant fruit is reflected on the palate, which also shows a hint of liquorice, sweet cinnamon spice, and subtle cedary French oak. The wine is beautifully structured with soft, velvety tannins, balanced acid and abundant, bright, sweet fruit on the finish.
