Aromas of blueberry and dark chocolate come up from the glass. Blackberries lead on the palate, followed by chocolate and espresso. Tannins are grippy, and will need a well-marbled New York Strip to allow all the fruit to come through. Recommended. 89 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.
