I have had Bual Madeira and I have had Malmsey Madeira --my favorite is a 1964 Bual from Broadbent going for over $650 a bottle-- but this was the first time that I have had a mixture of both.

Another wine that Mr. Trabb introduced me to, this ambrosial concoction reminds me of the walnuts and pecans in the syrup that you find at any good ice cream shoppe. However, this aint for kids! Lovely, in it's nature, thick in body and with a kick, this is the best accompaniment to a nightcap, either drank straight or poured over a dessert. It would also be a morning after treat served over waffles with strawberries.

The bottle is hip and this would wow people if it was stocked in a club.

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.
