Jammy nose, blueberry pie and plums. The palate starts with sweet blueberry compote and plum, adds a tart zing of raspberry on the mid-palate, and ends with a flourish of vanilla and brown sugar. Sweet tannins and tart acids give it balance. Drink with portobello mozzarella burgers. Recommended. 87 points.

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.
