Medium brick red in color, and only semi-opaque. Sour cherries, freshly turned earth, and vanilla are on the nose. On the palate, cherries and redcurrant join turned earth and leather. Tastes are rich an the mouth-feel round. Tannins are sweet and acids bright. This is a very pretty glass of wine. Drink with roast pork loins. 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.
