Zinfandel is such a wonderful grape, full of zest, exuberance and power, but this wine doesn't belay that to you. The aroma and color is great, but the taste is lacking in fruit and complexity. I honestly can't give this wine much love.

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.
