    April 21, 2019 - Very nice Cab Franc - we bought these bottles at the winery about four years ago, and they've been sitting quietly since. Figured it was time to open one up for our Easter holiday dinner. The 2022 end-date is significantly off, this one seems like it can easily sit for another 10 years or more, so suggesting 2029.

    June 9, 2018 - A great vintage for Cab Franc typicity in Napa, and a great bottle from rockstar Dave Del Dotto and his team. Shows blue and black fruits with intensity, along with judicious oak and a nice mélange of complex herbs, all structured and balanced with just-right tannins and acidity. One of our favorite Cab Francs.....

    February 15, 2018 - Fruit forward, easy drinking, crowd pleasing. Not overly complex or interesting, however.

    February 10, 2018 - First wine of a 9 bottle flight. Pnp. Very approachable. Bright and lively yet firm and focused. Full bodied with soft tannins. Should continue to improve in 3 to 5 years. Love me some Del Dotto.
