I first sampled this wine during a large tasting late last year, and while it slipped temporarily from my memory, the next time I saw a bottle of it, something in the back of my mind stirred me to pick it up.

Since I accidentally threw out my empty bottle, I had to guess the alcohol content, but I can tell you that this wine is both smooth, serene and exciting. Yes, that is an oxymoron of sorts, but as soon as you try it, you'll definitely understand it.

When you taste it, you immediately get the lemon-lime taste, but also some slight herbal flavors, and you'll love it's crispness. All of the other reviews that I have seen for it agree, and this wine has also taken some rewards. And for the price, it's an ultimate winner.

Pick it up, and thank me when you see me.

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.
