Greg Norman Cabernet-Merlot Limestone Coast 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Mulberry, anise, and mint on the nose

Cherry on the palate, with some eucalyptus

Velvety finish of cherry, blackberry, and some sweet spices tapering nicely

I've always hesitated to buy the golfer's wines, but I'm glad I picked this one up. Not only does it have some exotic flavors, it is velvety smooth on the finish and has a classy overall composition.

The unique blend of fruit with anise, mint, and eucalyptus layers is really quite nice. If you're able to figure out just the right food pairing, it could be tremendous.

The price is right on this wine. While I see it often in the mid teens, if you look around you'll probably be able to grab this on sale for under $15. I paid $13 a month ago, which makes it a nice value for sure. Raise a glass!

Would you say this wine "Isn't par for the course?" Might this be a "birdy" wine as opposed to a bogey wine? Remember Norman's famous "choke" in the 4th round of the Master's when he lost a 6 stroke lead? Maybe he should have started in wine earlier??? Fore!
