The nose smells like a fine chocolate bar with black cherries. Darker fruit, blueberries and boysenberries, show on the palate, joined by vanilla and rose petals. Mint and tobacco leaf show on the mid-palate. Tannins are a bit rigid in this young wine. Drink with a good burger with onion rings. Recommended. 88 points. DBH

About The Author

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.
