Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.
Vineyard Notes
The 2012 growing season was nearly ideal, especially coming after four consecutive vintages challenged by weather, low yields, or both. Vine growth was off to a great start following healthy amounts of rain in late winter and early spring. Summer temperate conditions sustained berry development to the point of delicious ripeness. Early October rains induced a Botrytis bloom throughout Dolce’s vineyard blocks. After a couple weeks of drying conditions, the berries were showing signs of concentration and harvest began. We made nine harvest passes from November 6 to 27, dodging some light rainstorms but safely removing the last berry just before several inches of rain fell.
