I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Arnold Trabb, the East Coast Account Manager of Premium Port Wines, at the New York Wine Expo in February. It was love at first site with his wines, and we've probably met before at a couple of wine tastings with me tasting some of his older ports and madeiras.

This time around, we met to get a chance for me to review some of his wines, and see some of the things that most people might not connect to their brands.

This wine not only had essence of dark berries and cocoa, but also just a little bit of oak. This is a wonderful wine that should not be consumed without food. Well priced, it's something that you should try on your shelf.

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.
