Loads of strawberries, plus sage and red clay, waft up on the nose. Strawberries of every kind, from plump and ripe served with cream to tiny, wild, and tart, to dried, come through in layers on the palate. Sage gives way to clove and a touch of cinnamon from attack to mid-palate, and strawberry-rhubarb, sweet and tart, lingers on the finish. This is fresh and fruity, with some acid zing. It pairs beautifully with crispy roast pork. Highly Recommended. 91 points. DBH

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.
