A terrific Cabernet that shows vast improvement over the winery’s earlier efforts. In fact, you could place it next to far more expensive Napa bottlings. It’s dry and elegantly tannic and complex, showing blackberry, currant, violet, herb and cedar flavors that bring to mind a fine Bordeaux. Drink now with upscale fare.
The descriptor Deep Red perfectly captures the essence of this blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Syrah and Grenache. It’s rich and full-bodied, with expressive, complex red wine flavors of red and black currants, spiced red plums, crushed pepper and hints of dark chocolate and anise. The tannic structure is wonderfully soft and intricate. Drink this beautiful wine…
This is a lovely Zinfandel, soft and appealing. It has fine balance and is dry and rich in cherry, currant, Provençal herb, spice and tobacco flavors. Shows real complexity as it changes in the glass.
A beautiful Chardonnay notable for its food-friendliness. Strikes a firm path toward dryness and minerality, with suggestions of citrus, peach and vanilla. The racy acidity is wonderful. Defines elegance in Chardonnay, at a good price.
This is really a lovely Zin. It has the weight, tannic structure and complexity of a fine Napa Cabernet, but the flavors are all Zinfandel. They include black pepper, red and black cherries and raspberries, currants, sweet tobacco, gingerbread and smoky oak influences.
Paul Dolan uses fruit from his Dark Horse Ranch as well as some from Parducci to make this almost 100% Cab (there’s 2.5% Petit Verdot), a fruit-forward wine with ripe, concentrated flavors and awesome dollops of cinnamon and cola spice. Let the wine air.
Dolan continues to produce stellar whites and reds from organically grown grapes in Mendocino County. This Chardonnay is ripe and full of minerality, a liquid form of crisp apple with vanilla on the finish.
