A complex, well-crafted and inviting wine that shows tobacco and vanilla bean notes alongside generous plum, raspberry, and blackberry. The ripe and juicy mouth offers the chocolate cherry flavors typical of Merlot with the full body and peppery spice of Cabernet to round out the full body and complement the fruit. The finish is bold, gripping, and invites another sip.

Black Girl Magic is a term used often, but what is it? Black Girl Magic is a concept and movement that was popularized by CaShawn Thompson in 2013 as a way to "celebrate the beauty, power and resilience of black women" and to congratulate black women on their accomplishments. Referring to a speech made by Michelle Obama at the Black Girls Rock Awards, Thompson explains that black women around the world persevering despite adversity, inspired her to spread the concept of Black Girl Magic. With these women in mind, Thompson created the social media hashtag and rallying cry "Black Girl Magic", in the hopes of counteracting the negativity society places on black women.
