46% Viognier, 28% Chenin Blanc and 26% Grenache Blanc, this wine is matured in French Oak and with that has a slightly different finish on it.  Very nice on the tongue like a slightly weighted silk, I get a combination of herbacity with petrol on the backend.  This might be great for some folks, but I think it should be served with seafood which will be a perfect counter to it's heft.

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.
