    October 19, 2015 - It smells like blackberry, stoniness, black currant (cassis), oak, rose, raisin, cool/menthol, mint, fig, stoniness and grapefruit.

    April 20, 2015 - Fantastic. The Del Dotto Cab Francs are consistently some of our favorite wines.

    April 4, 2014 - THis wine has developed significantly since last tasted in 2012. It has developed much more. Full bodied and muscular in style with bold notes of ripe fruit, some cinnamon notes. Some might think a little too bold but we liked it a lot.

    September 21, 2012 - Cinnamon on the nose. Bright berries and fruit with a medium finish. Very smooth and drinking well now

    June 15, 2011 - NY/NJ Offline at Fonda Del Sol 6.15.11 (Fonda Del Sol, NYC): Dark color in the glass. Very ripe nose (bordering on raisiny) with aromas of black cherry and tons of vanilla. Similar notes on the palate. Full-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and low to medium tannin and acid. The fruit still manages to show through, but there is a ton of oak in this wine nonetheless.
