Pietra Santa Dolcetto Cienega Valley 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Three-weeks of "cold soak" prior to fermentation and over two years of aging in French oak barrels intensified the flavor and character of this wine. Ripe with berry, hazelnut and licorice flavors.

The Winery Pietra Santa and its History Pietra Santa is a family-run estate producing artisanal wines and olive oils in California’s Central Coast. The site was planted to winegrapes in the 1850s by Frenchman Theophile Vache who chose the location because of the maritime climate and unique soils. Pietra Santa is 25 miles from Monterey Bay and benefits from cool coastal breezes that allow for a long growing season. The estate’s location on the San Andreas Fault creates soils rich with granite and limestone that naturally lower yields and add distinctive flavors to the wines. The winery was named PIETRA SANTA, Italian for SACRED STONE, in honor of these exceptional soils. In 2005, the property was purchased by the Blackburns, a family dedicated to preserving and building upon this magnificent winemaking history. Read less

Deep ruby red, with sweet notes as it has matured for 10 years now. Nose, as well as taste give a strong impression of a port wine, with the Dolcetto backbone of blackberries and plum, albeit much sweeter than when young. Although it is best to drink within the first 3-5 years, it was still a pleasure to taste what age did to this wine.
