The nose is soft and rich, crème brûlée and melon. White peaches and honeydew melon show on the palate, lime peeks through on the mid-palate. Vanilla and cantaloupe come out on the finish.

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.
