Ripe black fruit, espresso, and hints of tarragon show on the nose. Raspberries and cranberries, coffee and eucalyptus, all come through on the palate. Tart flavors linger. This is a bit of a mish-mash, disjointed fruit and flavors fighting against each other instead of working together. Not Recommended. 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.
