Greg Norman Estates Cabernet-Merlot Limestone 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Greg Norman Estates Limestone Coast Cabernet Merlot is 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. A fine Cabernet Merlot, reflecting the generous regional flavors and character of the wines from the Limestone Coast of South Australia.

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

Very smooth. Great wine at a great price. I paired it with a gourmet meatloaf and mashed potatoes and it was perfect! Tonight I'm trying pizza with it. Yummy

Lively, juicy and graceful. A smooth red with currant and plum flavors wrapped harmoniously around the finish, with overtones of toast and cedar. Drink now through 2012. 90,000 cases imported.
