Sweet citrus aromas erupt from the glass, navel oranges, Meyer lemon, and Key lime. The palate is a bit more subdued, but more complex as well. Tangelos, mango, and key lime pie with graham cracker crust come through in waves. A mineral undercurrent runs throughout. Key lime lingers. This is a fresh, fruity, surprisingly complex bottle of wine. Drink with blackened red snapper. 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.
