This is all about the mouth-feel, silky, soft, and luxurious. Flavors start with blueberries and elderberries, soft dark fruits. Moving toward the mid-palate it evolves, turning first to cherry pie, then moving up to the edge of the pie to the sugary pastry edges. Tannins a very soft, laying gently across the palate like a layer of silk. Drink with leg of lamb rubbed with rosemary and thyme. Highly Recommended. 90.

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.
