Another rosé that I came across, this one says that it's dry, but I get a little sweetness from it, with a nice bouquet of fresh strawberries which tastes like a little bit of sugar has been sprinkled on them.  The color is an off-pink meaning that it has almost a lit bit of a tan to it.  The finish and aftertaste lasts a great ten seconds or longer.

I consider this one of the best blush wines that I have had this year, and the price is great right now.  With the second glass you start to feel things, and that's wonderful!

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.
