On the nose, this opens like a Kiwi Suav Blanc, all gooseberry and litter box, but after most of that blows off, tropical fruits come through. Passionfruit leads on the palate, but white grapefruit comes up right behind it, and laps it on the mid-palate. Gooseberry runs throughout. It’s bright and acidic, but a little jumbled. Drink with fried chicken. Recommended. 87 points. DBH

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.
