The nose is huge, filled with dried blueberries and herbs. The palate is even bigger, with fresh and dried black cherries, blueberries, espresso, unsweetened chocolate, and cloves. Tannins are powerful and smooth, mouth feel big and meaty. Drink with well-marbled ribeye to tame the big tannins and let the fruit flow. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points. DBH

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.
