Bing cherry and sweet strawberry, with hints of leafy herbs, come through on the nose. On the palate, rich red fruit flavors, primarily raspberry and cherry, lead, followed by cinnamon, and a touch of birch. Food friendly and fruit forward, with a lovely mouth-feel, this is a very pretty glass of wine. Drink with sage-rubbed roast pork. Recommended. 89 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.
