That was actually the only way to describe this wine.  Color is irrelevant, so is weight/mouth/feel.  The reality is that the tartness in this wine throws off any good semblence of what you really want.  Maybe in a couple of years of aging this will be nice.

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.
