Btr Cellars the Chief 2011

Member Review by jtryka:

The color is a deep, brooding indigo in the glass, somewhat opaque. The nose is a lovely combination of ripe black fruit, cherry, plum and blackberry, over hints of tobacco, limestone and oak. The taste is wonderful, with some ripe cherry and blackberry that transitions easily to some complex mineral and spice notes midpalate. The tannins are somewhat refined, supporting a velvety mouthfeel and a lush, long, dry finish.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Love the light pepper taste with tobacco. Nice balance. Will look for again.
