Norman Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Meritage No Nonsense Red 2003
This delightful wine has all the classic varietal characteristics of a Meritage blend: bright, floral aromas of cherry and berry an herbal component of tobacco leaf and black olive, and a resinous note of cedar. Medium-bodied, it is nicely balanced with supple tannins, firm acidity and a pleasant malty flavor that lingers on the palate. Perfect with roast pork or rib-eye steak, it is enjoyable now and will age well through 2012.
Welcome to Norman Vineyards, a small family owned winery in the beautiful hills west of Paso Robles on California’s Central Coast. We’ve been growing grapes here for over 30 years, and making wine for over 15. Our specialty over the years has been elegant Cabernet and Meritage, bold Zinfandels, Barbera, and Chardonnay. Along the way we’ve thrown in a few small production wines to keep it interesting, and now, Syrah, which joined our lineup in 2002.
