I’ve drunk a number of Norman’s wines over the years and have never been terribly disappointed so much as just not impressed. In BC they sell at a premium price point too. The 07 GN Shiraz has the bouquet of a classic Shiraz but, as one person put it, tasted shallow. For the price it is completely lacking the depth and layers of its many Oz alternatives. And, unfortunately, a lot of chalk on the finish (or, to borrow from the label, not so supple tannins). Went OK with a BBQ dinner but was quickly corked.
Price: $24.99 sale priced at BC Liquor.
Market Liquidity: Probably someone else’s go to red.
