Boysenberry and blackberry are joined by brambles on the nose. On the palate, huge fruit is joined by pencil lead unsweetened and milk chocolate, and hints of espresso. Mouth-feel is huge and round, tannins are dusty. Drink with a bone-in Strip. Highly Recommended. 93 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.
