Heron Bluff Vineyard AVA: Columbia Valley, WA 100% Dolcetto 13.0% Alc. by volume 750ml
Bring on Summer…and bring on Adrice Wines’ second vintage of Dolcetto – the rare Italian grape knows as “the little sweet one”. Winemaker Pam loves working with Italian varietals because they respond so well to her winemaking style – clean, simple…let the grape speak for itself. And BOY…does this “little one” have a voice! (In a sweet voice, the style of Aretha Franklin:) “HELLO…I’m BACK! Pull out a wine glass and fill it up with ME!”
The “little sweet one” displays a perfumy nose of sweet violets, plum, and a little sweet cocoa. In your mouth, let her complex, rich, ripe dark fruits of plum and blackberry cascade over your tongue and down your throat gracing you with a lovely, long finish. That same sweet voice whispers….“See…I told you so…you should have bought more bottles to stash away and unveil during the darkest days of winter!!!”
Adrice Wines’ Dolcetto can be served with grilled meats and vegetables or go crazy with a Mediterranean Mezza platter of grape leave-stuffed Dolmas, Baba Ganoush, and balsamic-drizzled veggies. Don’t be surprised if you fall in love with this Dolcetto from Adrice Wines – we sure have!
