While this wine is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon [at least 75%] they also throw in some Cabernet Franc and Merlot as well.  Weirdly, not only do I get dark cherry but also blueberry, making this quite an interesting wine.  It does have the aspects of coffee and chocolate as well, but this blueberry aspect keeps shining through.  There is also a nice quick tart aspect to this as well.

The color is luxuriously a deep red and the mouth is middle of the road.

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.
