Cue another unforgettable Dolce Late Harvest White dessert wine. Forget dinner; we could just sit and sip this liquid gold all by itself. This Dolce has gorgeous fruit, butterscotch, floral notes and more, all beautifully balanced by perfect acidity. Our mouths are watering already for this top notch late harvest treasure which Wine Enthusiast lovingly calls "one of the greatest sweet California wines in memory". It pairs amazingly well with blue, goat and salty cheeses, nuts and nut desserts, fruit desserts, foie gras (much like its friend Sauternes) and custard dishes. Our first choice is pignoli (pine nut) torta with marsala-poached autumn fruit.
The two are about as close to perfection as you can get. A real live warm lemon zabaglione is to-die-for delicious too. A simple choice which still showcases the many complex and delicious layers of "one of California's greatest white dessert wines" is vanilla-poached, then broiled pineapple. If savory is your preference, then make it a mature, room temperature French Roquefort cheese. The fantastic sweetness and stupendous fruit of the wine opposite the minerally salt of the cheese.
