Aromas of honeysuckle and magnolia roll up in waves from the glass. Ripe white peach coats the palate up front, then sour apple zings across, followed by slate and apricot. The finish last a long time. Acids are bright, mouth-feel round. This is a lovely wine at a very moderate price. Drink with fried pork tenderloin. Highly Rated. 92 points. DBH

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.
