This is an inexpensive sweet wine with acids and balance of a wine at twice the price. The nose shows honey and sweet Valencia oranges. Honey, oranges, and peaches in syrup, with an acidic background of lime, make up the palate. There’s even a lingering lightly nutty flavor lingering on the palate. Drink with roast turkey. Recommended (84-86). DH

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.
