Barry,

I've not had the Rose' from Norton. On the port-style Nortons - one from VA is ok and can be drunk now. Many that I have from MO are vintage dated and can be kept for a decade or more.

Jenni's wines will stand up to a steak or strong blue cheeses now and will probably be smoother and better in 3-10 years based on what I've tasted.

Having said all that I think that the Petit Verdot in Virginia is excellent, ageable and something to start buying in quantity for laying down. A month ago my bride and friend and I went searching for good Petite Verdot. What wasn't sold out was still in barrel and was most excellent. We tried to buy a case on the spot from barrel samples at one winery and were rejected......but he would give it some thought.
