The color is almost black. It is very dark on the attack, too, leading with huge mulberry followed by black currant. Coffee shows on the mid-palate. It has big, chewy tannins with enough acids to support them. This is a good wine for the price. Recommended (88). 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.
