Well, that's what I taste and this isn't bad.  Over the years, my palate has started warming to good Pinot Blanc wines, and this one is nice.  The nose on this wine is floral, the mouth a little silky and the finish lasts about twenty seconds.  You get just a tad white peach from this wine coupled with light honeysuckle which could also be taken as honeydew melon.

This wine is a perfect example of why you should try white wines outside of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
