The color is almost clear, a very pale yellow. The nose shows fresh pears and honeydew melon with a spritz of lime. On the palate it is intensely fruity, and rich. Pears, melon, and tangerines explode, zippy with lime zest and layered with herbal hints. It softens on the mid-palate, with fruit pie and vanilla. The pastry lingers. Drink with baked chicken and biscuits. Recommended. 89 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.
