I enjoyed last year's vintage of this wine and this one continutes the tradition. Deep purple in color with a taste of tobacco, spice, cocoa and leather on top of the slightest amount of cherry.  The finish is a good thirty seconds and this wine is more New World than Old World meaning that it's more heavy and full than what you'd commonly expect out of Burgundy.  Still great.

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.
