Color is a deep ruby, bordering on red-black. The nose is rich with blackberry, black currant, and cigar box. Black currant and blackberry lead on the palate, with floral undertones and structured tannins. Tobacco appears on the mid-palate. Fruit takes the lead in this restrained, refined wine. Drink with rack of lamb. 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.
