Floral notes and a taste lemon grass and honey [to me] make this Sauv Blanc different than the traditional citrus that most American think of.  Slightly oily with a petrol component, this wine sits in your mouth and stays there, doling out Meyers lemons and infusing your gullet with an immediate whoosh of potency that almost burns like Scotch, but in a good way.  I think I will have to hang with the winemaker someday.

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.
