I just had to pick up this bottle several months ago because it was different; I mean, 'Sweet Shiraz,' WTF!?! I saved it for a special occasion, and dared someone to drink it with me. They said that it's a 9 and not a 10, so that's what we're going to go with.

This wine retains the color of a great red; deep purple in color. The body is light, but the taste is very fulfilling. It's very fruity; blueberries, raspberries, etc. It's sweet, but not as sugary or sweet as a traditional dessert wine. Lena says that it's a wine that you can't stop drinking.

I would consider this wine a 'Ladykiller' and as Lena and the bottle both say, this would be great with cheese, or a cheeseburger.

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.
