Chris James 2017 Dolcetto
Chris James 2017 Dolcetto is another bold red that is produced by Chris in Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The Dolcetto grapes, an Italian classic wine is grown in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA in the Willamette Valley. This wine has intense red fruit flavors and aromatics with a acid backbone that allows this wine to stand up to bold Italian foods.
Aromas of plumeria, Maraschino cherry, ground espresso, and dark chocolate. Flavors of huckleberry, tangy hints of blueberry, plum, and some deeply steeped hibiscus tea.
This pairs well with portobello burger, Angel-hair pasta in bolognese sauce, baby back ribs, or anything done in a tomato based sauce.
