Favorite Wine: Cabernet, Vidal

Not a very busy day when we visited, yet the staff seemed like we were troubling them to get some service. That aside, when we finally did get our wine tasting flight, what we sampled was excellent. I thought the overall atmosphere was a little commercial, but still relaxing.

Favorite Wine: Red Table Wine

I visited the location that has Elk Creek tasting in the Oxmoor Mall. I really liked the Red Table Wine (a blend of Chambourchin, Baco Noir, and Merlot), Cabernet Savignon, Merlot, and Cranberry Apple.

Favorite Wine: Cabernet Franc

Norton Wine Review: Our last Kentucky winery of a day was at the beautiful park-like setting of Elk Creek Vineyards. Their Norton wine was ill named as “Sweet Owen Red”. But after tasting, we liked and agreed with Kim, our host, who stated “I can enjoy this wine in front of a fire or in the sun.” Not only did we enjoy our enthusiastic host, but we also enjoyed their vineyard grown, light colored, yet full bodied Estate Chambourcin along with a Cabernet Franc worthy of multiple purchases. The $$ Cab Franc was short oaked first in American oak followed by French oak for eleven months before being placed in stainless tanks. It took us over 90 minutes of tasting fun and an additional purchase of their burgundy-like Chardonel to get away from this site. If you find yourself traveling along I-75, go slightly out of your way to find Owenton, KY, - you will not be disappointed. ADDENDUM: a note from a Missouri Norton enthusiast ~ "...drank that GREAT Kentucky [ECVW] Norton last night. Totally sucked it down before dinner. It's like an 06 St James, it just keeps opening up, with the oak becoming more and more pronounced the longer it's open. Very impressive. Of course, if I ever saw it in a store, I'd never look at it because it has the word 'Sweet' on it."
