Cassis and vanilla come through on the nose. The palate shows more complexity, leading with black currant and mulberry, adding tart red fruits on the mid-palate. Unsweetened chocolate, espresso, and some pencil lead dance in and out among the fruit flavors. Drink with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH

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.
