The color is a slightly translucent deep red. The nose is redolent with black fruits, with high-toned hints of cranberry. The palate is huge and round, throwing out plums and black cherries, backed by milk chocolate and black tea. Tannins are sweet. This is a big, round, fruit-forward, crowd-pleasing mouthful of wine. Drink with medallions of beef. Highly Recommended. 92 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.
