Norton also called Cynthiana, is a rich, full-bodied, dry red wine with spicy overtones including chocolate, juniper berry and cedar. We age the wine in handcrafted white oak barrels from Missouri. Indigenous to North America, Norton grapes are known for their deep blue-purple pigmentation, the skin of Norton grapes has a higher content of anthocyanin antioxidants than other purple grape cultivars. Norton wine possesses up to twice as much of the beneficial chemical, reservatrol than other red wines.
