Round and juicy, this wine puts fruit ahead of wood for a friendly easy drinker. Raspberry, vanilla, and a touch of smoke show on the nose. Cherries and raspberries, with a small sweet kick of blueberries, show on the palate. Background flavors include vanilla, smoke, and cayenne. Drink with mozzarella burgers. Recommended. 87 points.

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.
