Delightfully fruity aromas come out on the nose – strawberry, banana, and pineapple. The palate was a bit more subdued, leading with melon, followed by raspberry and herbs. This is refreshing and fruity, and would pair well with a summer salad. Recommended. 89 points. DBH

David Honig

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.
