Sometimes, you look at a bottle and marvel at it, but aren't quite ready to make the financial commitment.  Well, this happened to me with this wine and I finally decided to get it.  This wine is very sophisticated but still lacking the oomph needed to make it special.  Sure it can floor you with the alcohol, and the fruit it nice (dark cherry) but not overbearing.  Nice, but overpriced.

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.
