This wine has one of those noses that almost makes you forget to take a drink. Aromas of orange blossoms, distant magnolia, and freshly-sliced pears all float up from the glass. Soft, round fruits lead on the palate, poached pears and mangos, with cut grass in the background. Pink and white grapefruit show up on the mid-palate and linger with sweet Meyer lemon. Drink with any white fish you caught yourself within the last 12 hours. Highly Recommended. 90 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.
