Aromas of cocoa and blackberries absolutely leap out of the glass. Black cherries and chocolate, then blackberries and hints of tobacco, make a rich palate. Tannins are a bit dusty and the finish drops just a bit too quickly. Drink with flank steak. Recommended. 88 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.
