Violet, almond, and damson plum skin are all layered over a lightly earthy base note on the finely delicate nose. Showing pretty big fruit up front, this is quite ripe and even a little jammy in the mouth, though fine tannins and firmly integrated acids add some backbone on the midpalate where this gains a lovely earthy purity. The crisp little tannins pop on the backend where this gains a lovely vinous quality. The finish shows some warmth but is also quite complex with hints of iris and beetroot accenting the core of earthy berry fruit. This still has room to grow. 91pts

  • 943463Bill Davis Here is one of my favs: Whidbey Island, WA Dolcetto 2012 $25.00 / Classic Style / "A sassy little Italian number that will tease your tongue with a briarpatch full of berry flavors and elusive notes of pomegranate, vanilla and graphite. Dolcetto is the everyday wine in its native Piedmont and has quickly become a staff favorite here at the winery. Its generous flavors and lively acidity make it a great pair with grilled meats, especially game, and tomato sauced pastas. Molto Italiano." (GOLD: Seattle Wine Awards, 2014.) Source:
