Football & Steak 🥩 wine. Didn’t realize this winery goes back almost 100 years. I see some 1937 out there still.
Even at 20 years old it needs a 2nd day 3 hour decant.
189, The Wine Advocate
Readers who require immediate gratification will dislike this wine, which is one of the most concentrated behemoths and tannic blockbusters of the vintage. This is very much in keeping with the proprietor’s intention to make wines such as they made in the 19th century, and ones that can last 50+ years. Still young, with plenty of noticeable new oak, this 2000 tastes like a 3 to 4-year old St.-Emilion. Plenty of barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberry, and plum characteristics are present in both the aromatics and flavors of this broodingly backward, massive monster. While fascinating, it is not for everybody. I originally gauged its maturity to be around 2010, but I would push that back to 2015-2040+. — 6 months ago
Just a notch below the 16,
TRB made wines. With more air this would really shine, 2-3 hours would of been perfect.
Parkers review, he has it a 96 as well,
Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 “Regusci Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon features beautiful ripe plums, black cherries and dark chocolate with suggestions of red currants, black raspberries and spice box plus hints of Sichuan pepper, underbrush and pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate is full-on decadent, featuring rich, velvet-lined black fruit and exotic spice layers, accented by red berry and earthy notions and finishing with great length and depth. 130 cases were produced.

Smooth, light, strawberry taste. — 7 months ago
Typically not a Pinot Grigio drinker, but had to give this a shot after reading Parkers review. Probably the best one I’ve had.
Notes from K&L
The 2016 Pinot Grigio has really nice concentration, ripe apple, and peach stones, with hints of lemon peel and wet stone and can feel the barrel ageing on this wine. Full-bodied, with a good grip and a long, memorable finish, great for just sipping on in the evening or would love something with a lot of spice or just a long straw. — a year ago
Good... Couldn't find price? — a year ago
Del Dotto Pritchard hill, it’s ready to go almost pop&pour
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Villa del Lago is a huge wine endowed with tons of class and personality. It shows fabulous intensity from beginning to end, with layers of dark fruit that build effortlessly towards the big, enveloping finish. This is a dramatic, large-scaled wine bursting at the seams with personality. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
