The color is beautiful, pink with hints of copper, clear and bright. Strawberries with a light sprinkle of sweet cream waft up from the glass. Strawberry is joined by citrus on the palate, sweet tangerine and tart lemon, with a clean grapefruit-pith bite. The finish lingers nicely. This is a bright, clean, fresh rose with plenty of body from the pinot.  Drink with dark meat baked chicken with peaches. Highly Recommended. 90 points.

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.
