Another Sobon Estate wine, but this one reminds me of French Oak againg.  It's not bad, but it's too unctuous and not refined enough.  The alcohol, while powerful, overbears on the overall bouquet of this wine.  I'll be honest, they need another winemaker.

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.
