And also the Malbec.  Lately, my palate has been romanced by the classic Bordeaux blend, but this wine only contains three of the five varietals.  In this case, 45% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot.  It is an unctuous wine with aspects of leather, slight cocoa and pepper and an undercurrent of faint currant.  This wine deserves red meat or fowl like goose or pheasant.  The color is a very rich deep red and the finish is good for about fifteen 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.
