The color is a bright golden caramel. The nose offers up, lightly, hazelnuts, pecan shells, and dried orange peel. The palate is dry, slightly salty like the breeze of an ocean, with the taste of smoked nuts, pecan shells, and orange peel. This is a wine to drink with cured meat, olives, and salted nuts. Recommended (88). 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.
