Fox Hill Vineyard, CA
What we love
Fourth generation California winemaker Sam Bilbro's 2017 Dolcetto is fabulous. Sweet red cherry, licorice, spice, cedar and tobacco all flesh out in a deep, resonant wine packed with character. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with freshness and firm tannin on the finish. It is joyful and fully serious all at once. I loved it.
About this Wine
Planted in the Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino, this Dolcetto is a rare gem from California. Fermented 100% whole cluster with partial foot treading, this vintage shows the contrast of bright freshness against a firm structure that you love to see in Dolcetto. Enjoy!
