I normally leave Cakebread alone because I think that it is severely overpriced, but I thought that I would take the plunge and try this one.  I am [happily] assaulted with blueberry, dark cherries and a lovely high alcohol content.  This wine is a boss and Rick Ross knew about red wines, he'd rap about this.  Great structure, great fruit, and a heavy finish that easily lasts for more than forty seconds.

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.
