Finished in French Oak, this wine has a very spicy aspect that you’ll notice just as soon as it splashes upon your tongue. The aroma has both a smoke component and a dry component. Reminds me of taking an extract from an herb, but this is a typical Merlot. I would recommend this with something very spicy, especially some desserts. I think that cinnamon and nutmeg would be the perfect compliment to this.

This wine is perfect for traditional red drinkers.

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.
