Okay, this says it all, but it is what it is.  Mostly made up of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon with Mourvedre and some other red varietals, this wine is an inexpensive little blend that isn't too bad.   I immediately get berry flavors, but I can feel the oak.  The finish is nice, with a length that takes at least twenty seconds.

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.
