The color is very light, just the palest straw. Gooseberry drives the nose, with cut grass a distant second. On the palate, gooseberry leads as well. White grapefruit and citrus blossoms come through on the mid-palate, and grapefruit zest lingers. This is a bright, zippy, clean glass of wine. Pair it with fried chicken, a picnic basket, and a warm day. Highly Recommended. 90 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.
