I caught the Botrytis.
Which says a lot that I'm writing about the Dolce when she also poured a Nickel and Nickel Chardonnay, a Far Niente Chardo, a nice Nickel and Nickel Merlot and a heavenly Far Niente Cab Blend. http://www.farniente.com/
That Dolce had me at hello. Its honeyed sweetness swished to the very doorstep of cloying, then batted its eyelashes..."Hello..." Add that to its silky texture, honey color and fabulous bottle. You have to try it!
Later, at nearby restaurant South, I squealed when I found a delightful southern hemisphere Botrytis under the category "Stickies". It rocked! Unfortunately carried away by my share of an exceptional GSM (lush color and mouthfeel bursting with blackberries and leather) Pikes from the Clare Valley in Australia, I forgot to write down anything. Paired with the Roaring 40's blue cheese...again, the angels sang. Now, that I have the Botrytis, I'm finding it everywhere. Including Solano Cellars, where I had another great example which they paired masterfully with a fresh bruleed peach. This...wine...makes...dessert....better. Who would have thunk?http://www.solanocellars.com/
