Chocolate-covered cherries and a light herbal touch roil up from the nose. Cherries dominate on the palate, with dark chocolate and raspberries joining on the mid-palate. Tannins are dusty, acids well-balanced. Drink with a great burger. 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.
