The nose is deep, with freshly-turned earth under rich black cherry and ripe strawberry. It is just as deep on the palate, adding leafy herbs and cola. This is a rich, complex Pinot that drinks well above its price point. Drink with duck. Highly Recommended. 90 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.
