89This offers aromas of black cherry, plum, and vanilla. The leading flavor on the palate is elderberry, a deep black fruit. It is lifted around the edges by raspberry, sweetened with fig paste, and spiced with nutmeg, pepper, and soy. There is a real umami undercurrent that makes it special. Drink with teriyaki steak. Recommended. 89

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.
