There are certain stores that I got into and rarely get a bad recommendation in regards to wines for me, and in this case, the recommendation was for someone else, but I wound up picking up two of the bottles anyway.

While this Zin is not full-bodied, and the oak is a little pronounced, it's alcohol content more than makes up for its deficiencies. The taste is more cherry than anything else, with leather and oak accents; there is some slight raspberry as well, but I get more tart then I would normally like. However, I believe that this bottle only ran me about $7.

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.
