Whidbey Island Winery 2013 Dolcetto, Yakima Valley, $27

By on December 23, 2015

Whidbey Island Winery Dolcetto labelRipe plum, spice and cherry aromas promise to deliver a palette of fruit flavors that arrive with the first sip of this lovely 2013 Dolcetto from Whidbey Island Winery. Its Yakima Valley fruit shows off pie cherry flavors and bite on the palate and closes with a hint of leather. It’s been an impressive year on the competition circuit for the Langley winery, as this bottling earned a double gold at the 2015 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition, and the Osenbachs also captured a double gold for their 2013 Grenache during the spring Great Northwest Wine Competition.
