“I love this wine!” With these words, Meg Houston Maker cemented the judges’ selection for Best of Show in the Fifth Annual Palate Press Grand Tasting. Lychee, honey, graham cracker, and an orange peel twist with hints of white pepper in the background, all ebb and flow in waves of layered flavors. The finish lingers forever. drink with foie gras or a cheese course. Very Highly Recommended. 97 points.
