Dolcetto means "little sweet one" and it refers to the smallish, early ripening red grape that the folks of Piedmont in northern Italy planted to satisfy the birds so they would move on before the prized Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo ripened. It is not widely grown in California. This particular bottling from winemaker Rob Lawson is a delicious, deeply-flavored, dark-colored red wine with lots of facets of flavor. The nose is full of bright cherry and plum aromas, while in the mouth there are pronounced flavors of ripe raspberries. The wine is lush without being overly extracted and shows excellent balance throughout the long finish. Bravo to Rob Lawson for producing a bargain of a tasty Italianesque wine. Plus, as a bonus, it is made of organically grown grapes. - Jeff Prather
