A true jewel, the 2016 Dolce Napa Valley has orange blossom aromas and stone fruit flavors that shine bright, with caramel undertones that promise to gain richness over time.
Dolce’s style goals are foremost to express the fruitfulness of the vintage nuanced with spice, for the aromas, flavors and finish to be lifted, reminiscent of one another, and enduring, and for the finishing impressions to compel a second sip. The 2016 vintage exemplifies all those traits beginning with aromas of apricot, pear, honeysuckle, all-spice, and vanilla. Similar fruitful flavors follow the oily and lively entry but this vintage has flavors also suggestive of a treat along the lines of crème brûlée and bread pudding. The texture is particularly watering on entry carries the flavors into its long, juicy and satisfying finish!
