Greg Norman Estate Wines

Greg Norman Estates:
Don’t be fooled by this golf legend dabbling in wine. Greg Norman takes his wine making as seriously as his golf game

2005 North Coast Cabernet
The 05 cab needed a little time to open but for a young wine, it drank quite well. The majority of the grapes come from Sonoma so it’s no surprise this wine had a lush fruit profile. The aroma of berries was pleasing and a hint of vanilla and cassis added to its character. I thoroughly enjoyed the wine and the $15.00 price is a bargain for this quality. I highly recommend it.

2005 Lake County Zinfandel
If you’re a fan if zins you’ll enjoy this wine. You instantly delight in the peppery spice and earthy nature of this wine. Blackberry and red raspberry dominate this wines character and it finishes quite nicely. To preserve its fruity character the winemaker kept the wine in small oak barrels for a short six months. My first love is big, bold reds but I enjoy an occasional light and spicy red. This wine fit the bill nicely. I recommend it.
