Sweet cherry and strawberry, red licorice, and rose petals all come through on the nose. A whole fruit bowl of red berries roll across the palate, from sweet strawberry to tart raspberries. Freshly-turned earth, red licorice, hints of vanilla, and even a closing touch of saline, all add to the complexity and depth of the wine. Deep, rich, complex, and just begging to complement the dinner table, this is a bottle to seek out. Drink with rack of lamb. Highly Recommended. 94 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.
