2005 Far Niente "Dolce" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml)

SKU #1042477 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Year in and year out, Dolce is one of California's greatest sweet dessert wines, and in 2005, it may stand supreme. It's an impossibly rich wine, mainly because the botrytis mold developed perfectly in this fine vintage. Shows fabulous flavors of apricot purée, vanilla-infused crême brulée, pineapple sorbet and candied ginger, balanced with brilliant acidity. The residual sugar is 12 percent. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense and vibrant, with citrus peel, tobacco leaf, honeysuckle, honeydew melon, spicy fig preserves and fresh peach flavors. Rich and fleshy-textured, but with an acidity and structure that gives the flavors some traction. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. (MW, Web-2010) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Sweetness. Like the most sinful dessert in liquid form, the 2005 Dolce, from the folks at Far Niente, satisfies our craving for sweetness with some hidden surprises. A combination of late harvest Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the foggy town of Coombsville, east of Napa, the Dolce is Napa's Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its earthy, botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity. Wonderfully food-friendly, this will pair well with foie gras, poached figs, cheeses, chocolate or crème brulee. Or cellar and watch the wine evolve.
