Orange rind, crème brulee, and white truffles, flavours of apricots, and figs, and finishes with a hauntingly lengthy and oily texture. Far Niente, one of the earliest stone wineries, derives its name from the Italian phrase, Dolce Far Niente (how sweet it is to do nothing), was founded in 1885 by John Benson and flourished until the advent of prohibition. Far Nientes quest to produce outstanding wines of distinctive character has led them to a philosophy that requires vineyard ownership. Today, they own 200 acres (3 different vineyard sites) of what many regard as some of the finest vineyard land in the Napa Valley, USA. Their Stelling Vineyard of 100 acres, is located against the west hills of Oakville, contiguous to the winery, on some of the most beautiful gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley Surrounded by Marthas Vineyard and Mondavi Reserve, the soils are responsible for Napa Valleys most beautiful and age-worthy wines. Grapes: 80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc Region : USA / California / Napa Valley Maker : Greg Allen Notes: The Dolce dessert wine offers aromas of orange rind, crème brulee, and white truffles, flavours of apricots, and figs, and finishes with a hauntingly lengthy and oily texture. Serve : Foie Gras, sweet desserts and rich cheeses ABV : 13%

Far Niente, one of the earliest stone wineries, derives its name from the Italian phrase,Dolce Far Niente (how sweet it is to do nothing), was founded in 1885 by John Benson and flourished until the advent of prohibition. Far Nientes quest to produce outstanding wines of distinctive character has led them to a philosophy that requires vineyard ownership. Today, they own 200 acres (3 different vineyard sites) of what many regard as some of the finest vineyard land in the Napa Valley. Their Stelling Vineyard of 100 acres, is located against the west hills of Oakville, contiguous to the winery, on some of the most beautiful gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley Surrounded by Marthas Vineyard and Mondavi Reserve, the soils are responsible for Napa Valleys most beautiful and age-worthy cabernets. Vintage: 2005 Grapes: 89% Semillon, 11% Sauvignon Blanc Vinification: Fermented for 3 - 16 weeks. 28 months in 100% new French oak. Alcohol 13.8% Tasting Notes: The Dolce offers aromas of orange rind, crème brulee, and white truffles, flavours of apricots, and figs, and finishes with a hauntingly lengthy and oily texture. Upon release, Dolce is best characterized by notes of fruit, fruit and more fruit! Notably reminiscent of stone and citrus fruits, Dolces style is driven by the luscious ripeness of Californias sunshine. In its youth, this liquid gold is forward in its expression of fruity aromas and flavours, but as it ages, an alluring perfume and minerality become important parts of its style. The honeysuckle character commonly associated with Botryisied wine provides for complexity and seduction, as does Dolces signature silky texture and long, mouthwatering finish.
