Wind Rose Cellars 2011 Dolcetto, Columbia Valley, $18
David Volmut is the owner and winemaker of this Olympic Peninsula winery, and he focuses on Italian varieties. This Dolcetto uses grapes from the Wahluke Slope and Yakima Valley and includes 20% Barbera. This wine was fermented in stainless steel and is built to be consumed at a young age. It’s also nicely priced for pizza, spaghetti or lasagna. It offers up aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and huckleberry taffy, followed by yummy, youthful flavors of ripe dark cherry and blueberry. A bit of grip from tannins give this wine plenty of length.
Distribution: Olympic Peninsula, tasting room and on winery website.
