I can't say that I am great fan of traditional red wines, and can't say that I am not. It all depends on what I drinking, and what mood I am in. But since I was having a steak, I chose to crack open this bottle of red.

I have been a fan of Rex Goliath for several years now, as they make a nice bevy of wines which run for less than ten dollars and usually rate 92 points or above (though we can really dispense with many of these ratings systems, can't we?). And in this wine, I am equally enthused, elated and sated.

The wine has a great rich ruby color, followed by great body and a wonderful taste. Really, the only thing that matters is the taste, and with this wine, it is rich in dark plum and dark berry which rightly juxtaposes the slight amount of hollow tannin that you get in this. I would consider this a great release, and if you look on their website, you'll see the list of awards that it has garnered over time.

Great job you big rooster!

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.
