    August 20, 2019 - When did Dolcetto get this hearty? Tasty!

    August 3, 2019 - Dark purple, can't say garnet, less red in the color. Nose was quite nice, some floral, dark fruit. Initial sip was fruit forward, pleasant. More structure on the back of the palate. Med/long finish. Rosalie was disappointed in the mid and back palate, thought it was harsh. That might be dolcetto, more than anything. I thought this was quite representative of the variety, and very drinkable now. Will be interesting to try day 2.

    January 22, 2018 - Exactly what a domestically-grown/made Italian varietal should be: plenty of grippy tannins and old world funk with just enough CA fruitiness to round it out.

    September 7, 2017 - I failed to heed my own advice, and served a bottle of this as part of a tasting this week. It was really tannic. There is still a lot of fruit, so let it sleep.
