2012 Dolcetto Takes Double Gold at New World International - and Platinum 96 Points at Consumer Wine Awards!
We are thrilled to announce that our 2012 Dolcetto, released in January, won a Double Gold Medal at New World International Wine Competition! -And just announced, Platinum and 96 Points at Consumer Wine Awards! "Dolcetto, like Barbera, is another northern Italian varietal that seems perfect for our region," comments Winemaker Mark Foster. This 2012 Dolcetto is loaded with aromas bursting with floral notes of roses, spice, dusty berry and bright cranberry. It is a delightful wine combining a rich full-bodied mid-palate, luscious fruit, good acidity and a bit of oomph on the back end. And Dolcetto is incredibly food friendly! Other medals included a Silver for our 2012 Rough & Ready and Bronzes for 2011 Merlot and 2012 Viognier.
Our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious blend of grapefruit, citrus and lime flavors finished in a crisp, dry style. Full flavored and fruity, enjoy this wine as an apéritif or with your favorite seafood, chicken or pasta dishes. Perfect for summer! 25% off 6 bottles, 30% Wine Club Members. Order Here.
