Each vintage of Dolce Napa Valley is hand-picked, not just cluster by cluster, but berry by berry. It then spends nearly three years in barrel, where it develops a bright stone-fruit perfume, elegant caramel undertones and a texture like silk. 

Other Notes
As Dolce ages, its appearance transforms from golden to amber hues.
Tasting Notes
The 2008 Dolce offers aromas of spiced poached pear, peach cobbler and orange marmalade. The entry is honeyed, followed by creamy flavors which echo the aromas on the nose. The smooth and coating texture leads to a mouthwatering finish that compels a second sip.
Vineyard Notes
Dolce’s 20-acre vineyard is located in Coombsville, east of the city of Napa, and is 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.
