The nose has plum, cherry cola, and black tea. Black cherry, black tea, and cola lead on the palate. There is a real earthy umami that comes out on the mid-palate, a soy-sauce richness that lingers with cigar-box spices. Moderate tannins match moderate acids. Drink with anything made with lentils. Recommended. 88.

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.
