Wine Profile
Harvest Notes
The 2013 harvest season followed the same pattern of excellent quality as the 2012 vintage. Winter brought with itself a vast amount of rain, followed by one of the driest springs and summers in a long time. Harvest commenced about two weeks earlier than average allowing for all grapes to be picked before the arrival of rain. In summary, 2013 was another amazing vintage, providing all elements to make outstanding wines with mature tannins and flavors and aromas that truly show a sense of place.
Vineyard Notes
Dolcetto is an Italian red grape that is believed to have originated in Piedmont and its means "little sweet one". Our Dolcetto comes from Fox Hill Vineyard, a 150-acre ranch owned and managed by Lowell Stone. Located 8 miles north of the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River and sitting at 750 feet of altitude on a west-facing slope, this site provides outstanding conditions for growing this very late ripening red varietal.
