Something else I figured that I would pick up after a quick sample, this wine goes nicely with beef, especially burgers (I went to Booby Flay's Burgers for the first time).

This wine is not too light and not heavy at all, and you get dark fruit with some leather and tobacco on the back end.  The aroma would make any cigar lover intoxicated.  The finish isn't strong, but it lasts for about a nice twenty two seconds before dropping off to a very faint scintilla or flavors.  The color is a nice purple but not too rich.

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.
