The nose is very shy, but with effort shows mangos and peaches with a background of citrus flowers. The palate offers the same combination of tropical and stone fruits found on the palate, with the addition of sweet lemon. Hazelnuts and a very light background taste of vanilla show on the mid-palate. Perfumed flowers linger on the finish. Drink with fried chicken. Recommended (86-88). 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.
