The color is very pretty, light, bright, and garnet. The nose shows dusty cherries on leather. The palate shows cherries with mesquite smoke, graphite, then tart cherry-rhubarb, with firm tannins and very fresh acidity. Feel free to pair this with anything from pizza to burgers, but it would be just as comfortable on a table at home with a New York Strip and a loaded baked potato. Good wine, great price, buy this one by the case. Highly Recommended. 90 points.

About The Author

David Honig

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.
