Norton Wine Review: A real project is on tap working with grapes in the harsh environs of Lexington, VA. Not only will you find a delightful Chill Norton Rose, but a Southern treat white Traminette which had rhubarb overtones (yum). As for their Norton wines, they offered a 2006 'Black Tie' Norton which was blended with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Good, but I found this state silver award winner tainted with dark tar flavors which hasn’t matured into formal attire at this point.. Their younger 2007 Norton was a murky brown. We picked up a couple bottles of this for a later 2014 Virginia Norton wine comparison. . . . . . . . . . ~ it’s three days later now and time to do a bit of follow up. Driving along Virginia’s Northern Neck river coastal waterways, we found blue crab freshly steamed in heavily seasoned river brine. We instinctively went for our Lexington Winery young with sharp tannins Norton and were pleased with the pairing of this wine and the incredible treat of spicy crabs. Good for this meal, but unfortunately the 2007 Norton did not hold up the next day exhibiting cooked raisin flavors and unusually heavy sediments.
