I can't remember if I ever had this before, and so I gave it a whirl.  Now, I did the one thing that I don't really do with wines, which was to chill it.  To me, I get instantly hit with lemon which is much to tart for me, and the finish takes too long for me to let that go.  Composed of two-thirds Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir, I will say that this wine does deliver constant tiny bubbles.  This is probably because it is aged for an average of two years on the yeast.  This is not for me, but should be great for others.

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.
