ISLAND DECANTER SET | by Nadine Saylor | Handmade in USA

The Land Down Under

They say that the deeper you get into a bottle of wine, the more of yourself is revealed. That is certainly true for this exquisite decanter set. Handblown by Nadine Saylor with the care and craftsmanship of a glass art sculpture, both decanter and its matching tumbler have an angular island that rests below the surface of your spirits. As drinks are poured, slowly its contours are revealed. And, most strikingly, the physical properties of glass allow light to refract around its edges, focusing into a point of almost mystical light, right at the island’s exposed peak. When not in use, the tumbler flips over and rests atop the decanter’s slender neck to serve as a stopper. Handmade in Pennsylvania.
Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Perfect for the Holidays: Fonseca Bin No. 27 Port

Winemaker’s Notes
Fonseca Bin No. 27 was created over a century ago for family consumption, and only released commercially in 1972. It is produced primarily from wines from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo and thus shows an exceptional quality and consistency from year to year. Blended from reserve wines selected for their intense fruit character and depth of color, Fonseca Bin No. 27 spends four years in large wood vats prior to bottling. Although it may improve slightly with bottle age, Bin No. 27 is ready to consume when bottled. It does not require decanting, as a cold precipitation prior to bottling prevents any “crust” from forming. Its well-knit structure, rich, velvety full body and luscious blackcurrant and cherry flavors, also evident in the nose, carry into an intense, lingering finish. Bin No. 27 should be served at room temperature either alone or with simple, classic last courses and desserts. It is best consumed within two weeks after uncorking.

Critical Acclaim
Wine Spectator – “Fresh and grapey, with plenty of grip and power behind dark plum, chocolate and berry flavors that feature slate and pepper notes. “
