I tried the 2012 vintage of this wine probably last year and didn't do my own due diligence to see if I ever had this one before.  Honestly, I just get sugar from this which would coincide greatly with what they say is the taste of marzipan [on the back of the bottle]; you can actually detect it in the nose.  I would like to say that this is a wine to aid in the transition between sweet wines and more structured wines but I will not make that assessment.

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.
