Stone Hill Winery 2012 Cross J Norton
Hermann, Missouri

Norton is one of the few North American grape varieties used for making wine, and is the official state grape of Missouri. The original Stone Hill Winery was established in 1847, growing to become the second largest winery in the United States before Prohibition shuttered its doors in the 1920s. The winery was reopened in 1965, and wines like their 2012 Cross J Norton show that Stone Hill has only improved with time. On the nose, the wine exhibits aromas of chocolate and dark berries that lead to a dry, full-bodied and sweet offering.
