Trying to make the chocolate chip cheesecake from Gullifty's in Pittsburgh

Hello Chowhounds,

One of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten was the chocolate chip cheesecake at the now-defunct Gullifty's in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. It was a tender, not-too-sweet cheesecake, lighter than a New York cheesecake but still quite dense and cream-cheesy, with a chocolate cookie crust, and a vanilla filling with chocolate chips mixed in. It was topped with a white chocolate whipped cream/creme fraiche, and the chocolate chips were very dark and contained some type of red wine. I found the picture below on Gullifty's' old TA page, and I think it might be of the same cheesecake, although it could just be a similar one.

Do any of you remember this cheesecake, and has anyone managed to make a convincing copy of it? If so, would you mind sharing your recipe? And how, especially, did you duplicate those dark, wine-flavored chocolate chips?

Thank you and happy new year,
Ninrn
