Norton Wine Review: Upon crisscrossing the scenic intersection of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania one can find Friendsville, Maryland and a small, but an important winery which has commanded the respect by many for its Norton wines and its owner’s research and understanding of the background of the Norton grape. Paul Roberts, author of From This Hill, My Hand, Cynthiana's Wine, and his wife are more than happy to graciously meet you. You can find fine examples here of a Vidal, Pinot Gris, Seyval blend and Ursa Major (Zin/Norton blend). After hiding away our previously more reserved 2007 Ursa Major (84% VA grape Norton/16% Zinfandel) for four more years, we were greeted with an astounding knock-you-down bouquet and full mouth presentation of Norton flavors. Only two regrets, ~ regret #1 is that we did not buy a case of this ‘best of the East Coast’ Norton example vintage and regret #2 is that today this winery has reversed their Ursa Major blend (65% Zin/35% MD grape grown Norton). Now for the good news, ~ Deep Creek Cellars plans on releasing their first 100% Maryland grown Norton wine mid-2014. Our bags are packed!

Favorite Wine: Ursa Major
Vacationed in the Deep Creek resort area for the last two years and have visited this winery both times. Owner/winemaker is friendly, knowledgeable and he makes some very good wines. He's also very honest about his offerings. He'll tell you the truth about his own wines. Every year is not a success with some and he's upfront about. I like his reds the best especially what was for me a real find,Norton a variety that until I visited Deep Creek I had never hear of. He blends this native grape with Zin and or Cab Franc. Tasty! These are not wines for the long haul but why wait? Give Deep Creek Cellars a visit if you're ever in western Maryland.
