The nose shows baked apple and cream. On the palate the use of new wood shows, but does not overwhelm. Flavors are baked pears, cream, and a tasting hint of Nilla Vanilla cookies. Mouth-feel is full. Drink with stuffed flounder. Recommended (87-89). DH

David Honig
Publisher

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.
