Okay, so I was thinking that I would get Chardonnay and some other varietals, but instead got a mix of Ugni-Blanc, aka Trebbiano, and Airen, which is used a lot in blending.  It's not bad, tasting of toast, but not one of my main flavor profiles that I have come to know and love.   Not  a lot of bubbles either.

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.
