The nose is lovely, sending up aromas of blueberry pie and coffee. On the palate, the wine takes a minute, starting flat and then showing more subtle dark fruit flavors, blueberry and boysenberry, with some cherry on the mid-palate. Coffee follows from the nose, with some milk chocolate, too. This is an interesting wine, but one that might be in a dumb period. If you have it, set it aside for a year or two. It should reward you with wine that is both delicious and fun. Drink with pot roast. Recommended. 87 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.
