Support your local restaurants! Beautiful Berkshire pork chop dinner from the Selland restaurant group!

1.5 hour decant( lots of chunky sediment). A splendid dark ruby red color. On the nose: black fruit, floral, black olives, with a hit of pine/menthol. Taste: cedar, black cherry, licorice, with a chocolate metallic finish. A soft wine..tannins mostly resolved...a medium body, medium acidity, with a medium plus finish.

Gave up on getting properly identified but this is 2010 Estate .the Red fruit with hints of cherry is delightful. Will improve for years but great now.

Lots of blackberry and some blueberry here as well. This wine was a full bodied wine and seemed to have more weight than the Altagracia but this one was just a tad boring. Now, it could have been because there were 50 glasses and 15 to 20 wine bottles on the table so there wasn't much room for a decanter. And this was definitely one of the last bottles that was opened. I think this one needs about five years in the cellar, and an hour in a wide decanter before it really starts to show its stuff. Nice bottle
