We took a trip down to the mountains of Georgia a few weekends ago and picked up this, along with a few other, delicious yummy bottles of wine. I reviewed one of our favorite Chardonnay from Three Sisters Vineyard and this is one of our favorite local vineyards.
This wine was deep and delicious. The finish just seemed to keep going and going. It's full bodied and very rich. When we were at the tasting room we tried it with the dark chocolate and it was heavenly!The American winegrape Cynthiana-Norton is a special treat that you won't find everywhere. The Cherokee Indians and Thomas Jefferson grew this grape. It was the most popular winegrape in Georgia over a hundred years ago and now it is back! The 2006 vintage Three Sisters Cynthiana displays a deep rich color with notes of butter scotch and caramalized black cherry. Pair it with lamb or game. Try it with dark chocolate and experience the sensation of chocolate covered cherries!
