I opened a bottle of the Norton Blend yesterday. It's drinking very nice for a 10 month old wine. In my opinion its short on oak and the tannins could be a little bigger. I have the remaining 5 gallons of Norton with a med toast american spiral so this should help. If you all think it is OK I'll blend the rest and maybe put it in a new barrel to get the oak up a little. Please let me know and I know it's Norton an it's not a favorite to all.
