The color is nearly opaque, tinted blue-purple around the edges. The nose shows tobacco leaf, black currant, and rich cherries. On the palate, raspberry is added to the fruits found on the nose. Coffee makes an appearance on the mid-palate, along with raspberry licorice. Tannins are round and lightly chewy. Raspberry comes out on a long, lingering finish. Mouth-feel is very smooth, acids bright. Drink with lamb. Highly Recommended (93-95). 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.
