      Winemaker Notes

      Dolce is a blend of 76% Semillon and 24% Sauvignon Blanc. The rich, exotic fruit flavors and the honeyed botrytis character of the wine are complemented by toasty oak overtones that are balanced by a long, clean finish. Despite the difficulties experienced in the vineyard, this blend holds great promise. This warm vintage naturally developed more tropical flavors than some previous vintages - a reflection of vineyard location and vintage. The wine should continue to grow in complexity and interest as it ages in the bottle. -Dirk Hampson, Director of Winemaking

      Dolce Winery, Napa Valley, California
      2001 (375ML half-bottle)
      Dolce was founded in 1989 by the three partners of Far Niente as they started pursuing the goal of creating world-class late-harvest wine in the Napa Valley. Dolce devotes itself exclusively to the production of a single late-harvest wine blended from botrytised Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

      Napa Valley

      View all wine

      One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

      Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
