Big red fruits come flying out of the glass on the nose. Black cherries, raspberry, and brambles fill the palate, and hints of coffee show on the mid-palate. Fruit lingers on the finish. This is a big mouthful of wine that calls for a big mouthful of steak to go with it. Pair it with anything you want, as long as it starts with “cowboy” and ends with “ribeye.” Highly Recommended. 90 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.
