Norton Wine Review: Occasionally you stumble into an out-of-the-way winery which just does everything correctly, and in this case, ~ Forsee Vineyards. This is a ‘no apology’ eight acre location, which reveals what they have and what they aspire to become. Several wineries that I have visited try to pretend that their first released Norton wines may be special, but not here. The family wants you to experience their developing productions from relatively young 2003 planted vines. A good short tower wine sampling exhibits their willingness for you to try their 2008 first initial, dirty tart tasting Norton, followed by a flat with quick decay 2009 bottling, and ending with their latest complex, sharp malic 2010 Norton ($20) worthy of putting away for a couple years. This last release was produced in stainless steel laced with French oak chips. Is this developing Norton success due partially to their very close proximity to the Missouri state line? What a nice assortment, though leaning toward sweet and fruity wines, is offered here for a classy tasting, which includes a separate glass for each pour! This newly built farm setting has a no-rushed, almost Southern, appeal. Let me encourage you to try their various wines, to include a butterscotch aroma, but not in taste, uniquely dry red Corot Noir ($17) and an Endless Summer ($14) sweet, fruit lovers Norton variation.

Favorite Wine: Norton

Although for the first timer Forsee Vineyards may be a little difficult to locate, the products are well worth the adventure. Nestled back in a woodland setting the surroundings are lovely. Sitting out on the patio with a glass of their wine is peaceful. A great place to spend a weekend afternoon.
