Very bright acids and tart red fruit, strawberries, cranberries, and rhubarb, in leather, spiced with black pepper. Firm tannins and bright acids suggest good cellar life, but this is a great food wine right now, with a terrific QPR.

About The Author

David Honig
Publisher

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
