I know, that sounds weird like mink covered mink, but that's what this wine feels like.  Combining aspects of dark fruit (plum and cherry) with a little bright strawberry, this wine is a nice diversion from some things which as of late have started to let me down.  There is a little bit of cocoa and more than a little bit of depth with this wine, which makes it a welcome respite from the ennui of life.  Color is a deep carnelian red, aroma/nose is irrelevant, but taste is nice.  Medium-bodied, this wine would pair with red meats, chocolates, or fowl like duck and goose.

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.
