This wine has a subtle juicyness which gets to you after awhile.  It does have some nice flavors underneath which take you some time to differentiate from the tastes of tobacco and leather.  This one is a blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 16% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 3% Sangiovese, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Carmenere.   Oh, and of course the Petit Verdot gives it some smokyness as well.

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.
