This seems dominated by wood notes on the nose with burnt candle, tarry asphalt and coffee liquor notes. A touch reductive with slow to emerge herbal, clover tones and plum jam fruit. Smooth and plush in the mouth with a solid tannic core but also fairly rich so there is good balance here This could benefit from a few years ageing, deep dark fruit with cocoa, plum, prune, and juniper notes, a bit candied but with a powerful finish that offers up jammy plum and toast tones. 87pts

Had the 2004 vintage. Seems to be past its prime with mostly a woody flavor and almost no fruit.

Smooth, peppery, good with a meal or on its own


Winemaker's Notes:

In the Piedmont region of Italy, a Dolcetto is often found on restaurant tables because the grape's berry and spice flavors and natural acidity make the wine a natural accompaniment for meals. Our Estate Dolcetto features ripe plum and blackberry flavors with undertones of almond and licorice. The wine is full-bodied with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
