This is the second time I have had this wine, the first being our Zinfandel tasting for a wine lovers group I belong to.  This was overshadowed probably by the fact that we were drinking some twenty plus wines that day.  

This wine is dark and brooding, with very sinister but demure flavors of cassis and dark cherries lying underneath a facade that takes about five seconds to cut through.  It is not overbearing with flavors, but has it just out of reach of an immediate taste, allowing you to only appreciate this wine if you savor it in your mouth. 

This wine would pair well with dark chocolate as well as anything with some very serious decadence to it.  It would be totally lost on most meats, and you can forget anything that isn't spiced well.

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.
