The first thing I should say is that I just love their Grand Estates Merlot as it is one of the best Merlot wines for the cost.  This wine in turn is 63% Merlot, 33% Syrah and 4% Cabernet Franc.  You get more spice than berries with this ambrosia, but it suits more for red meats which are well seasoned as well as game fowl (duck or goose would go great with this).  Color is a nice deep purple and the feel is heavy silk on your tongue with the slightest hint of 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.
