Deep burgundy in color, and slightly cloudy. Black currant and plums come up on the nose. On the palate, black currant, plums, and blackberries all shine through. Unsweetened chocolate and cinnamon come out on the mid-palate. This is still a very young wine and will continue to improve for at least five years. Drink with a good filet. Recommended. 89 points.

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.
