It was my birthday and I decided to try something new.  This wine has power, somewhere, but it really is a combination of prunes and dark cherries which can't find its way into becoming what a zinfandel should truly be.  Very dry with too subtle a taste profile.

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.
