This is a very pleasant Sauv Blanc, and a good exemplar for what Napa Valley can do with this grape. Poached pears and white florals show on the nose. It is more tart on the palate than on the nose, with tiny green apples, white grapefruit, and jalapeño peppers. Grapefruit lingers on the finish. Drink with freshly-caught fried fish. Recommended. 89 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.
