The nose shows red plums and raspberry, deep red fruits with a bit of candied effect. The palate shows blue fruits, blueberry and elderberry, paired with a high-toned red fruit tartness. Mint and espresso peek out from behind the fruit on the mid-palate. Tannins are aggressive and drying, with acids to match This needs a lot of time in the cellar or decanting followed by well-marbled top-quality steak. Highly Recommended (89-91). 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.
