Producer notes: "2010 Dolcetto is a blend of grapes from three exemplary vineyards. The Honea Vineyard in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley lends big berry notes, soft tannins and roundness to the wine, the Walker Vineyard right across the street from Honea layers in dark, soft berry aromas and flavors, and the grapes from the cooler Zotovich Vineyard in the Sta Rita Hills add spice and lively acidity. Malolactic fermentation occurred in neutral oak barrels, where the wine aged for five months. A final blend was determined and married in a stainless steel tank prior to bottling in the Spring of 2011.

Tasting Notes: The dark, purple-violet color of the wine still shines with an exuberance and brightness -- it simply shouts of its playfulness from the glass. On the nose, a bouquet of blackberries and white clover, mingling with olallaberry jam. On the palate, soft tannins and more berry notes of black cherry, blackberry compote and boysenberry that linger and finish with a lovely bitter almond note. Smooth and balanced, this is simply delightful, delectable Dolcetto. Enjoy now, or within the next 1-2 years."
