44% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec 7%, Petit Verdot 5%, Cabernet Franc 3% is nice with this wine.  The flavors of cherry, cocoa and raspberry are not too strong, but this is a good introductory wine into a classic Bordeaux blend.

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.
