Half bottle (375ml)
Vino Dolce is a port style wine made from the Zinfandel grape. We chose to make this wine since Zinfandel was the only established varietal on this property when Shaun and Jeannine purchased it in 2009. Zinfandel isn’t an Italian varietal, but it is one that grows amazingly in this area, so of course we couldn’t just let it go to waste. To fortify this wine we chose to use a Syrah brandy that was aged 3 years in oak barrels. This prevents the Zinfandel characteristic from being masked by an overwhelming aroma and taste of alcohol. Next, the Vino Dolce was aged for 24 months in French Oak barrels creating a wonderfully smooth dessert wine with a hint of tannin on the finish.
