The color is a lovely translucent pink. Sweet strawberry cream shows on the nose. The palate offers nice complexity, leading with off-dry strawberry and adding zippy lemon zest and sweeter berries on the mid-palate. Lemons lingers on the finish. Drink with smoked salmon and crème fraîche. Recommended. 88 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.
