Palmina Dolcetto Santa Barbara County 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Vivid ruby. Vibrant raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with appealing spiciness and a hint of smoked meat. Energetic and focused, offering tight red berry flavors and a touch of anise that builds with air. Finishes with very good focus and persistence, leaving peppery spice and smoke notes behind. (Nov/Dec 2013)

After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less

45% Dolcetto, 45% Nebbiolo, 10% Barbera Rather fruity watermelon, cherry and dusty rose/bay leaf nose. A touch fizzy on entry and bright with intense acids, broad on the palate if a little low, with easy mineral raspberry and watermelon flavors that lead to a modest slightly mineral finish. A nice firm little rose. 86pts
