I figured that I would try this wine out, being that it was almost at my 15% mark in alcohol (my standard for me buying a Zin) and for the price it wasn't bad.  Nice and dark, with a depth of almost coffee instead of fruit, this is a nice wine to have with a chocolate cake or a cigar.  Note: I don't smoke cigars.  Strong at the back of your throat going down, and with a nice finish that imparts tobacco and some slight cocoa.

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.
