Part of the trinity that it Belle Glos wines, I was told that this is the fruit forward one.  It kind is hollow to me at the front, but then the crescendo is a combination of blackberry, tobacco and leather that is quite interesting (I think that the Clark and Telephone is the best).

The nose is strong, but the taste is what you really want; the hell with the color.  As you decant it more and more, the backbone of spice and leather appreciate, and it gets juicier and juicier the more time you give it.

A different beauty.

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.
