Dugger Creek Vineyard has one of the longest growing seasons in the Walla Walla Valley, which is exactly what Nebbiolo needs to develop. This wine is a study of contrasts! The translucent color and delicate smell are followed by a robust palate with great acidity. Enjoy intriguing aromas of wild rose petals, cherry fruit, tobacco, licorice and tar and delicious flavors which showcase juicy raspberry and cherry fruit, along with a savory element. The tannins are ample yet supple, with a finish that leaves you wishing and wondering.
