Size375MLVintage2010SKU16433#99 on The Enthusiast 100 list of 2011* With this wine, Dolce cements its status as California's most consistently great dessert wine. This years blend is 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, and the grapes were infected with the botrytis, resulting in the fantastic sweetness. Devastating in apricot, orange, pear, honey, vanilla and creme brulee flavors, in an unctuous, viscous texture, with wonderfully clean acidity, it's certainly one of the greatest sweet California wines in memory.
WS96Size750MLVintage2009SKU16535Wine Spectator #5 of 2012. 96 POINTS! This is a bird of a different feather, with an exotic, vibrant aroma of toasted coconut, followed by an almond cream note that gives way to the core of green fig, papaya, Cavaillon melon and honey. There's stunning richness and mouthfeel, with the power to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Very impressive. Best from 2015 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 11,000 cases made. JM
