Truth be told, I don't want to get into a rut of looking for the same tastes in wines [which is why I need to get me a couple of other people writing reviews as well with different tasting styles], but there are certain styles of various wines/varietals that move me. And this Snap Dragon Chardonnay brings out the best flavors of apple, pineapple and pear in a wonderful.

I would swear that this is partially aged in oak, but am not going to bet my rep on it. However, it has just the perfect weight and feel on your tongue, and I can see this wine as perfect through all four seasons, with some great emphasis during the spring and summer, and some heroism during the fall. This wine would be perfect with just about any dish for a white wine dinner, and it would even pair well with certain desserts.

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.
