Details

Winemaker Notes: Subtly silky and fragrant, with refreshing stone fruit flavors, this late harvest jewel is one of the most seductive wines for any season, whether served at cellar temperature or chilled way down for hot summer days. The 2012 Dolce is bursting with flavors of apricot and orange liqueur. Enticing fruit-forward aromas persist throughout the wine. On the palate, mouthwatering layers of vanilla and brioche mingle with lush fruit. A rich, distinctive texture and a smooth, coating mouthfeel carry this wine’s full flavors into a long and satisfying finish.

Dolce’s 20-acre vineyards are located in Coombsville, east of the city of Napa, and are situated at the base of the Vaca Mountains, which define the eastern border of the valley. The volcanic soil is loose and well drained, and the west-facing vineyard is protected from the prevailing winds so that the damp, morning fog of autumn—a very important factor in the development of Botrytis cinerea—hangs longer amongst the vines, often until midday. A combination of high humidity followed by drying conditions encourages, but does not guarantee, the growth of Botrytis. As the mold develops, its coverage is seemingly random with individual berries succumbing to Botrytis at different rates, if at all.
