The nose shows raspberry and elderberry, with hints of raspberry licorice and coffee. It has a beautifully velvety mouth feel, with pillow-soft tannins. Mulberry and black cherry lead, with mocha making a clear appearance on the mid-palate. This is silky-smooth and ready to drink now. Pair with New York strip. Very Highly Recommended (96-98). DH

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.
