Norton Wine Review: After tasting 65 other Norton grape wines from ten states, I decided to order a Norton wine from Iowa. On a scale of one-to-five, I would rate Sugar Clay's Cynthiana (Norton) a 2+ with their Cedar Ridge Red Blend (Norton-St.Croix blend) a solid 3. Either would go well with a meal of smoked turkey, beef, lamb, or pork.
