The funny thing is that of all of the Carmenere wines that I have had, most of them have been outlandishly wonderful, and this one falls in that line.

The color is a deep purple, with no leanings towards any other color. You taste oak/tannins which are in perfect balance to the dark plums and cherries; it is neither too dry, nor too grainy. You also taste some chocolate, which is a wonderful component to this wine.

The wine flows like silk, and the finish is a gentle cascade of around twelve seconds.

This is a wine to be reckoned with.

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.
