When you taste the Stone Hill Winery 2016 Norton, you are immediately struck by cranberry and sour cherry on the nose mingled with a soft and rich earthiness. Delicate carnations and blueberries are also in the mix, along with warm, toasted sugar. This vintage is a fruit-forward Norton with an old-world aroma and flavor profile. The wet harvest season of 2016 made for a delicate Norton with softer tannins and a perfect tartness best for pairing with hearty January meals.
