43% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the Petit Verdot makes quite an impact and takes over everything else in this wine.  Very dark, you get more smoke, cocoa and maybe a bit of currant, this is an interesting wine.  I really didn't like it at first, but it was easy enough to down three glasses with no problem, and I am writing this review on the fourth.  A very deep, dark purple, a finish of a good thirty seconds, and a nice velvet feel on the tongue.

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.
