Cusumano Noa 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting Notes:

Huge nose of cherry, ripe berries, and sweet spices
Medium-rich fruit on the palate
Long finish of cherry and earth

Wow! I didn't know Sicily could produce wine like this. I've had an aweful lot of Nero D'Avola, but nothing like this from the island. Most Sicilian wines have that "old world" elegance and charm. This is an entirely different story with a big bouquet of fruit and spice in a very modern style.

If you're looking for a big, modern style, you'll be very impressed with this wine. If you want refined and subtle- skip it- because there are plenty of others to choose from. Also, this one will cost you around $40.

Raise a glass!

With the multitude of alcohol-related horror stories in the news these days it seems to me that you and other wine lovers (and wine tasters) need to get your message out to more people. Let people know that drinking wine in moderation has been shown to have many health benefits. Spread the news about the fun and good times you have experienced with wine drinking and wine tasting :-)

As a firsthand victim of a drunk driver, I know all too well of what you speak. I find Biblical wisdom to be the best. "In all things, moderation." One thing is certain--Jesus turned the water at the wedding at Cana into WINE; not grape juice. So raise a glass; just not too many!
