  • Four years since the last time I tasted this, and I was afraid it might be over-the-hill. Surprisingly, it wasn't. In fact, it had improved rather dramatically. Same plummy nose, but it now shows hints of leather and herbs. Nice texture and a very good finish. Still not worth the money (I was drunk when I bought it at the winery), but a pretty nice wine after all these years.

  • Brings to mind what used to be one of the most enjoyable cellar tours of Napa if David did the tour. Still remember the creme brûlée barrel. Anyhow this is in a really good place but doubt its got a lot of time left. Dark purple, lengthy finish, best Del Dotto we have had.

  • This was drinking beautifully from 3.0L served with goat leg and all the fixings at the King's Table at the Girl n the Goat. Deep dark purple juice from Napa Valley that had a long lovely finish. Tons of fruit left in this baby! Enjoyed greatly with friends.

  • Opened tight, so we decanted. Medium finish, with complex tannins and red cherry. Quaffed whilst grilling. Drink now.

  • Purchased at the winery in 2004 following a barrel tasting tour (meaning my judgment may have been slightly impaired). Dark, with no signs of age. Plums on a somewhat reticent nose and on the palate. Given this winery's obsession with oak experimentation, there was a surprising lack of coffee, vanilla, cedar, etc. - only a slight trace of smoke on the nose. Fairly light body for a Cabernet, but plenty of fruit on the finish. Not bad, but not worth what I paid for it, either. Still well balanced - should probably go another couple years.
