Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has a beautiful dark garnet color and fruit-driven nose of plum, anise, and allspice. Flavors of black fruits and subtle baking spices carry through in the mouth. This wine is lean with a finish that is long, generous, and well balanced. With proper storage, this wine should age well for 5 years from vintage.
Production Notes
Reflecting the warmer 2020 growing season, this new Estate Dolcetto is beautifully proportioned with gorgeous fruit and is perfectly structured. Harvested at 1.4 tons per acre, the tannins are mature and integrated. This grape is reminiscent of the lovely Dolcetto wines that thrive in Italy’s Dogliani region. Dolcetto is typically the first red wine grape of the vintage to be harvested at our Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard. This wine was fermented in one small (565 gal) open-top stainless steel tank and was punched down twice a day. After pressing, the wine was transferred to older French oak barrels to complete primary fermentation followed by a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs beautifully with cured meats and your favorite charcuterie or an all-bean chili and should be enjoyed at a cool cellar temperature.
