Favorite Wine: 2009 'Cynthiana' [Norton]

Norton Wine Review: Hightower Creek Vineyards is a new venture, opening its doors to the public only six weeks before our initial visit in mid July, 2012 Though some wines are now produced on site from Georgia sourced locations, many of the initial offerings were produced at Frogtown Winery, approximately 40 miles SW as the crow flies. Grapevines have been set out on the local property only recently; therefore, it will be years before we see what truly can be produced on this 2200’ elevation property. Available initially are a couple whites (Vidal Blanc and a blend), a Cab Franc Rose and three reds (‘Cynthiana’, a big red blend and a duplicate blend with 1% residual sugar to please the locals). Surprisingly for this new venture, one or more of the wines will have an appeal to most people. The 2009 Hightower Creek ‘Cynthiana’ [Norton] was held in American Oak and did not display the usual high malic to tartaric acid ratio typically found, making this perfect for drinking now. I doubt that this wine will develop further by holding much longer. With the introduction of yet another Norton winery, this wine’s popularity is spreading across the Southeast and will soon be a recognized red alternative to Zins and Malbecs.
