When you first taste this wine, it's acidity and sharpness gets to you, but after waiting a while (like a day in my case), it seems that breathing time allows for the wine's flavor to settle somewhat and mellow into a playfully palatable drink.

I think that it's probably paired best with citrus flavored meals.

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.
