    September 29, 2018 - Red fruit, herbs, minerality all come together nicely in this second rate Cab Franc. Enjoyable but certainly not worth the price tag.

  • Oldmanzin Likes this wine: 86 points

    February 18, 2017 - Notes of red fruit with dusty tannins. Somewhat lean.

    December 17, 2016 - Drink now. It does not have the longevity of other Del Dottos. Nice cab franc, easy drinking. Much lighter than the last bottle we had.

    September 22, 2015 - decanted 2 hrs. Paired w italian

    Medium body with JUST the right amount of tannin and fruit. Like a lighter, mellower CA cab sauv. Great when you're not in the mood for anything big and overpowering, or if you're not planning on eating heavy meats. Still would pair well though w steaks! Not too much of anything, just right and balanced.
