This rosé is a lovely, light coral pink. Aromas of Indian River Ruby Red grapefruit flow up from the glass. The palate is all citrus, sweet nectarines and bright pink grapefruit. Well integrated but very light tannins are detectable. This is a very pretty, very refreshing, classic provencal rosé. Drink with herb-crusted goat cheese. 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.
