The nose shows eucalyptus and mint, with hints of dark chocolate, all over high-toned red fruit. The palate opens with very interesting herbals, eucalyptus over mint, complementing the primary black cherry flavor. Bing cherries and raspberries are on the mid-palate. The finish lingers. Drink with lentils and wild mushrooms. A stunner at this price. Highly Recommended (91-93). 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.
