89pointsAcorn 2012 Alegria Vineyards Dolcetto (Russian River Valley)

Thick in black cherry and blackberry, this wine from a varietal rare in California also has a leatheriness. The vines were planted in 1991 along with Freisa and Barbera, the latter of which is represented in the blend. Smoke and herb wrap around a soft, approachable frame, calling out for rich pasta and braised meats. Virginie Boone
