2014 Castelletto Dolcetto
Wine Club Exclusive
Dolcetto is not commonly grown in California and when it is it usually produced in a soft light style. We create a big bold red in the Superiore style with firm tannin structure which has become very popular at Mount Palomar. The nose is of blackberry, pomegranate, cherimoya, fuji apple, fennel, and sweet spice. The taste is bright but complex with sour cherry, green apple, cranberry, and dark plum. The wine is still young and will benefit from continued again and is best if allowed to breathe before serving.
Extended aging in a mix of French and American barrels.
