Sweet nose with pretty fruits, pineapple and pears. On the palate apples take the lead, softening to pear on the mid- palate. A bit of ginger on the mid-palate leads to lemon curd on the finish. There is on underlying salinity from start to finish. This is a very nice wine at a reasonable price, offering pleasant flavors and interesting layers. Drink with a lobster roll and coleslaw. Highly Recommended (88-90). 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.
