Blueberries, cherries, and vanilla waft up from the glass. Tart cherries and sweet blueberries, with blackberry and oak in the background, make up the palate. A touch of raspberry adds a little zing to the finish. Muscular tannins and a meaty body make a vigorous mouthful, that would pair well with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. 90 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.
