Dry smoke, mixed with a little woody-ness and very mild tannins, I am tasting dark plums and a little black currant and dark cherries. It stayed in contact with the skins for 18 to 20 days, which is an extended period [but one that Eric says is going to be part of his normal style of wine production]. The wine has a finish that easily lasts for thirty seconds, and the taste is never too strong. This would be perfect for roasted meats and some grilled ones as well.

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.
