Prior to 1998, the Selva family's business was in bulk wine, but each year they made an ambrosial dessert wine-Dulce-for their own consumption. To produce this nectar, they left a few acres of vines to hang late into the fall. Even in normal vintages, these vines achieved spectacular ripeness.

Wine SpectatorChocolate and cherry flavors have a pleasantly bitter edge in this thick, firm red. Herbal and licorice notes add interest. There's sweetness, but the bitter note is dominant. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
