Dolce Late Harvest 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 Dolce Late Harvest 375ml may be the most romantic wine you have ever tasted. The Wine News calls Dolce, "one of the most celebrated sweet wines in California history." The 2003 is silky and succulent with notes of fig and honey. Every sip melts in your mouth and will leave you craving another. Dolce is an ideal gift that will be deeply appreciated. This is a California Wine.

Dolce:
Dolce embraces a deceptively simple philosophy: the pursuit of perfection in the art of late harvest winemaking. Created in 1985 by the partners of Far Niente, its existence is the result of overcoming remarkable adversity and developing expertise where no one else in the U.S. had it.

Dolce embraces a deceptively simple philosophy: the pursuit of perfection in the art of late harvest winemaking. Created in 1985 by the partners of Far Niente, its existence is the result of overcoming remarkable adversity and developing expertise where no one else in the U.S. had it. Dolce stands as the pinnacle, where Mother Nature and craftsmanship combine to define luxury through a wine capable of flirting with your emotions like no other. With a classic blend of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Dolce is the only American winery dedicated to producing a single late harvest wine. Dolce has brought forth a wine in every vintage, yet in small, unpredictable quantities; witness to the incredible difficulties presented every year in the effort to make Dolce. Dolce is an extraordinary wine bred from a combination of sunshine, soil, fog, expertise and dedication; a wondrous luxury, limited by nature to always being a gift of absurd rarity. Read less

DELICIOUS. My friends and I use the uncouth term "liquid crack" when describing the delightfully syrup-y Dolce. We can't stop sipping on it when we visit Far Niente. It is smooth and warm and sweet and amazing. Pair it with some creamy stilton or blues and it is nothing short of a home run. Also the bottle is so pretty - a wonderful gift.
