My buddy Keef and I stopped in at this New Jersey winery to sample the wares. We tasted the five Reserve offerings they had plus a bottle of their Norman’s Vineyard Cabernet Franc. I was impressed by what I tasted. The Chenin Blanc was spectacular- rich flavors, great mouthfeel and varietally correct. The NJ twist on Sauvignon Blanc was another delicious wine that had telltale cut grass amongst other yummy flavors. The rosé, a blend of 4 red grapes was very interesting and worth a re-taste. I was not a huge fan of the two reds we were served until it came time for the Cabernet Franc. Delicious- with dark/blue fruit, green pepper, medium (+) tannins, low acidity and good length. Worthy of the $48 price point? Not sure but it was a fun day out which makes the whole thing worthwhile. If you are in South Jersey this is a definite detour to plan on. Salut….
